Noteably Oracle doesn't :-(

"The INFORMATION_SCHEMA is part of the SQL-92 standard although most SQL
implementations do not follow this part of the standard closely. In
Oracle, there are several methods to get metadata information. The
available information is generally more comprehensive than
INFORMATION_SCHEMA would provide"

As if that were a reason to not implement the standard? Pah...
