You can already use STOMP - an open cross platform interoperable wire
protocol (that has much wider adoption among clients and brokers) with
Sonic, ActiveMQ and HornetQ today (the latter 2 having native STOMP
support built in). So the article is sounding a bit bogus already :)

OpenWire was created years before AMQP became public, though is only
used by ActiveMQ AFAIK. Other than that they are both binary wire
protocols for messaging (openwire supporting natively all the things
ActiveMQ users need to do).
