It's a pretty big stretch to call 4/3 a "standard".

I believe that the Four-Thirds standard meets most of the accepted definitions of a standard - certainly as much as the VHS tape standard did when it was first established. It has been generated by consensus of a group of organizations, is well documented, and revolves around concepts of compatibility and interchangeability.

A standard does not need to wait for widespread implementation to be considered a standard.
