Mmmmh, it seems that copying is allowed:

[...]
| grants to you a worldwide,
| perpetual, royalty-free, nontransferable, nonexclusive license to
| (i) copy, display, and implement the Advanced Messaging Queue Protocol
| ("AMQP") Specification
[...]

What seems to be not allowed is modifying or distributing a modified
version of the specification.
