They certainly aren't the only ones -- vendors of proprietary
applications that use MPI plus vendors of interconnect hardware get
significant benefits from an ABI.

Anyone who wants to distribute binaries of open-source MPI apps would
also benefit, but they generally don't get to use the verb "mandate".
