Well, I certainly gave some non-trivial input in the early days of the
design of the AMQP protocol to change it to map more closely the
semantics of MOMs like MQSeries, TibCo and in particular to map more
closely to the semantics of JMS & its concepts. Admittedly this was
about 6 years after reading the JMS specification - but if a .Net API
is tainted by its authors having read the JMS specification then maybe
AMQP is tainted too?
