The headline and initial part of the article is misleading. The USB specification clearly states that it can, and will, swap out the electrical interface with an optical one in the future. You yourself have mentioned that Jeff Ravencraft alluded to this in his talk today. The optical interconnect shown is useless by itself and can only be part of a broader interconnect specification such as USB.
