The fact that the VBA is for Windows (and Mac?) is not related to locking people in. VBA is a scripting language shared by all MSO programs to allow automation.
I disagree. As my response upthread indicates, a macro language is designed to allow access to an API i.e., an implementation-specific method of manipulation that has nothing to do with interoperability, portability, or file format specifications. Pedro wrote

No. But as Michael Meeks indicated (also linked upthread) it does make interoperability, portability, and transitioning from one product to another /significantly/ more difficult.
