One such platform exists and is the embedded system, others are the linux kernel and the like, and even others are writing D compiler back-ends and, yes, druntimes (well, exactly the part that it is called phobos-runtime above).

An embedded system that can support all of D but doesn't have a cruntime? I don't believe it. If it has a cruntime then providing bindings is a non-issue, and if it can't support all of D then supporting only a subset (and then being free to exclude core.stdc) is inevitable.

There was a D runtime years ago created as a separate project
around the time that Druntime had its beginnings (as Ares) that
had no dependencies on standard C.  The creator went by Maide in
IRC, and she was doing some really cool stuff with it that made D
work kind of like ObjectiveC.  I don't think it's in development
any more, but it's probably possible to track it down with enough
googling.
