FYI regarding CAP over XMPP (JEP-0127).

I will inform the Council if further coordination or feedback is
required, but at this time all seems good.

Peter -

Well, sorry it took me so long to get this to the top of my stack!

I'm working (in background, mostly) on an informational document on 
transport profiles for CAP.  What I'd like to do, if it would be 
acceptable, would be to designate CAP-over-XMPP as one of those 
profiles and (preferably) just include your JEP document as the 
appendix detailing that mode.

I'm not sure the OASIS TC could really add a lot of value beyond what 
your team has already done, other than just pointing folks toward 
it... besides which, we're stretched a bit thin right now.  But if 
you know of anyone who implements this JEP, maybe we could include 
them in one of the various interoperability demos that happen from 
time to time.

Your thoughts?

- Art
