Do you mean, like between Resolve and Baselight? ect... That would be a tall order since that work so differently, but a nice idea. At least some systems share CDL's amongst themselves effortlessly, even from different computer bases.

My wish, which if it were to happen would be far in the future, is that a standard 
Color Decision List (open source) be used between systems, such that a grading done on one system 
on one particular day be reproducible on another system on another day. Many things 
conspire against this, however, not the least that it would reduce profit and incentives for same. There is 
also the point that it might stifle innovation, though with Plug-in APIs there are ways to induce competition.
