Interoperability with other AMQP compliant components both in and out of 
Qpid and Apache is certainly key. That is what AMQP is all about and 
what Qpid should be about.

Faithful implementation of the existing AMQP specification is clearly a 
requirement as that is central to the charter of the project. Where any 
auxiliary or emerging specifications are adopted by a component, whether 
they are AMQP related or not, they should be compliant with that.

However, having a general policy where all Qpid components are required 
to implement whatever 'emerging standards' come out of the OASIS AMQP 
TCs is not something I am comfortable with.

The Qpid community as a whole needs to have a say in how future features 
will work through an open, collaborative process (open to _anyone_, even 
those primarily involved with other AMQP related projects or products).

Personally I think this would be better for AMQP as well. Allowing and 
encouraging the emergence of grass-roots driven, de-facto 'standards' 
developed in and between open, collaborative and transparent communities 
and backed up by proven interoperable implementations, which can then 
form the basis for official de-jure standardisation.
