Even if two implementations written by the same person are independent
in the sense that they don't share lines of code, they are not
independent in the sense that they'd demonstrate that the spec is
clear enough that two different people reading it end up writing
interoperable software. For that reason, I think citing these two
implementations as the two independent interoperable implementations
would fail at least the spirit if not the letter of the Process

(Of course, you could cite one of the above and a third piece of
software written by someone else.)
