Hi :)
Hmmm, what worries me is "MS" and "Standards" in the same sentence.
Haven't we already learned, many times over, that MS's idea of 
open = closed

This is true for corporations, nothing specific to Microsoft.  That is
why you need Open implementations and the ratification of a standards
body.  CMIS has all these.

standards and interoperable = only works once on one system
or at least that seems to be the way it has always worked out historically.  

Nope, that is already not true for CMIS.

So while it looks good i am fairly convinced there is a trap here
somewhere even if i can't see it and don't already know about it.  An
OpenSource equivalent that uses the alleged 'standard' would be much
more comforting.  

There *IS* Open Source implementations of CMIS.  Alfresco is Open
Source.  And there is even CMIS plugins for Drupal.  There are several
other CMIS implementations, see the CMIS Wiki page - they even have a
column indicating if the implementation is Open Source or not.
