CLDT stands for 'Common Language Data Types'
In IBM Smalltalk there are other abbreviations of that kind:
CLIM Common Language Implementation
CPM Common Process Model
CFS Common File System
CG Common Graphics Subsystem
CW Common Widget Subsystems
CP Common Printing Subsystem
EW Extended Widget Subsystem
I think CLDT, CLIM, CPM are taken form the ANSI standard.
None of these come from the ANSI standard.
In particular, ANSI Smalltalk doesn't _have_ any processes.
More generally, you cannot make class categories in any Smalltalk
either compatible with or incompatible with ANSI Smalltalk,
because there are no class categories in ANSI Smalltalk.
