Intel "Intel has provided the first hands-on demonstration of a laptop running its Light Peak technology, at the company's inaugural European research showcase here in Brussels. Light Peak is an optical interconnect that can transfer data at 10Gbits/sec in both directions. Intel hopes Light Peak will one day replace the host of other PC interconnects, including USB, DisplayPort and HDMI. The demonstration laptop was sending two separate HD video streams to a nearby television screen, without any visible lag."

I hope you mean "no defined higher-level protocol". If there's no defined fiber-level protocol for multiplexing data streams, that'd be a disaster akin to how, with ye olde serial dongles, what claims to be pass-through sometimes isn't in practice.
