Note: for USB and microSD I think it doesn't make sense to talk about "proprietary".
It could make sense for USB. Apparently the USB standard is somewhat vague and flexible, having room for "vendor defined" descriptors which could be proprietary, and has led to Windows-only USB devices.

Now, I doubt we'll see Windows on these fascinating new small systems anytime soon, so maybe this won't be that much of a problem.
