I personally think that it will end up applying to (or just being adopted by) 
anyone that has the potential of doing business with American government 
agencies anyhow, be they American or not. As the US Government helps provide 
grants to a lot of people, or gives cash to the people who provide grants..It 
will probably become a standard eventually in any case.
