Its definitely good that Rackspace is throwing a spec on the table, but I really doubt Amazon or Microsoft will follow their lead and formulate a common api. The "weight" placed on vendors will come from their customers demanding, for instance, a normalized API. Certainly, the fed's can wield influence if they intend to be a large customer. By setting minimal requirements, they can drive to a common set of expectations, api's and the like, from cloud vendors. Gene
