C++ has a formal ISO review process plus a community
based development site (Boost), and other media (eg USENET).

The code is free for any use, the specifications are not 
but they're cheap (thanks mainly to the USA national 
standards body).

Caml has a different development model, and one can 
imagine a reluctance to move it closer to the C++
model for fear the result might be similar ..
