I'd argue this one.  I know many of the variant MOO's you reference. 
I also know of several LP's which stray even further from the fold. 
Examples:

  LPMOO -- a very fine MOO clone coded in LPC which can run 
    almost all of LambdaCore

  Tron -- one of the very true PK games, and very original (as a MUD) 
    within that genre.

  BatMud -- Just have a look.
