The define their standard based on the architecture they were developed
on.  At some point someone ported them to a different architecture and
fixed the numerous endian bugs that the original had (because it had never
been tested on another architecture).

In otherwords, while you can code up a filesystem for a specific endian
format, it is highly unlikely that it will actually be endian-agnostic
until someone actually tries to port it to some other architecture, tests
against an original image, and fixes the (likely) bugs that crop up.
