I'm afraid not. Before your post, I had never heard of Rapid IO.
That being said, Open MPI is based on plugins, so someone could write a plugin for Radio IO support, if they were so inclined.

Open MPI supports a wide variety of networks:
- OpenFabrics: InfiniBand and iWARP
- Myrinet: GM and MX
- Qlogic PSM
- Quadrics Elan
- Shared memory
- Loopback (send-to-self)
