It is in fact the job of the archiving software manufacturers to implement AXF if they are going to conform to this standard.
To the best of my knowledge, the only such software manufacturer who has an end-to-end AXF solution is Front Porch Digital, and was one of the prime movers behind getting the standard adopted by SMPTE. If any of you other software manufacturers reading this know otherwise, please so advise.
IMO, at this time, AXF is a solution looking for a problem. The industry as a whole appears to be migrating from proprietary solutions to LTFS which so far is providing sufficient interchange capabilities to be the basis for most of the emerging content delivery standards.
