The ECMA spec requires that conforming CLRs always be little-endian. The
MS.NET CLR only runs on x86, which is little-endian, so it follows the
spec. The Portable.NET CLR, when running on big-endian machines, does
byte-swapping to provide a little-endian view of the data, so it also
follows the spec.
