Partially yes, although most of the big proprietry systems participate
in the NCIP process the number of practical applications of it is
woefully small (and even less that might be called in production ).
SIP for all its faults is being used for lots of off the shelf library
equipment (often doing things SIP was never envisioned to handle).
I think a lot of those equipment suppliers would be interested to see
what SIP3 might offer.
