I don't know what those things are.
I might say it was similar to CORBA, but I'd be dating myself and I
never really knew CORBA very well.

CDDL could be used to explain how the YANG serialization to CBOR or JSON
worked.
But, CDDL is also not a bits-on-the-wire thing, it's also probably human
and code generator.
(Carsten says that this is not exclusive the case, anymore, but I think
having Turing complete
information modeling languages is a bad thing, and might lead to Daleks
Invasions and Cybermen Kings)

I would expect that an RFC or other industry document that detailed a
series of claims might use CDDL to describe the contents of the data
that made up the details of the claim.
But, again, for the code generators (whether human or machine)
