Wait ... why can't a specification be a releasable, just like a codebase?  The only issue,
as I see it, would be enforcement of compliance.  And Roy even put forward a proposed license
amendment for such things.

As you saying that if the ASF would host the specification, that you and the rest of the AMQP
IP holders would be willing to contribute and manage the specification here under ASF practices?

I would be in favor of such an approach.  Honestly, I would vastly prefer to have Open Specifications
managed under ASF processes than under the JCP, OASIS, etc.
