There is the "Text Field Spec for LObjects" project, which was announced in 2010 here: http://email@example.com/msg01279.html, basing on the "Mochi" system, as Ted Kaehler said: "It has many half-finished experiments in it, and a fair amount of just plain wreckage". Although there are many of working OMeta's examples for Squeak (ForAll language, SpecParser, Nile), Worlds are also presented there and it is an updatable image. Another is Yoshiki's SqueakBootStrapper image with BootStrapEncoder/parser and of course: OMeta/JS wiki.

It's released under MIT, which means you don't need to ask specific permission (but note that I am only a contractor to VPRI, cannot speak for them).
And please remember to change the email subject when the topic diverges ;)
