Object Storage Model: has anybody real-world experience?

the Object Storage Model (OSM) has been introduced here 
http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2647517 and is provided in Truffle.

The paper describes some (impressive) benchmarks done with the Truffle 
implementation of JavaScript and with JRuby+Truffle.

I'm wondering if it has been used even in such class-based dynamic 
languages like Smalltalk and Newspeak, where objects have a fixed size 
of (named) dynamically typed instance variables but where the full 
flexibility of the model might perhaps be an overkill.

Also, I'm wondering if the OSM has been used and measured in real-world 
server applications with hundred of millions or even billions of live 
objects and/or if there are informal reports on its the usage in such 
harsher environments.
