"An ATX power supply for example will screw into certain mounting holes, have a maximum size and shape, and will take a standard 3-pin 'kettle cord' for incoming power."
I mean, seriously, can't you even fully read the first line of TFS?
I'm sorry I don't mean to flame, and I love my Apple products (MagSafe HELLS YEAH!), but the quote is talking about the standard for desktop power supplies.
Also, I somehow suspect that Apple will never adopt this standard. Rest easy my friend, your MagSafe is safe.
