The source code is open so any developer can port it if they so choose. It just seems nobody has bothered to do so yet. I think the real issue here is the amount of resources it takes for playback that will ultimately drive the developers to any particular opensource compression scheme. I'm no developer but my understanding is flac has the lowest requirements and that is why you see the most amount of hardware support for flac while you all other lossless codecs pretty much have zilch for hardware support.
