In the interests of making XEP-0124 into an IETF standard, I've split it 
into two documents. XEP-0124 is now a generic XML streaming protocol 
(renamed to "BOSH"), while the proto-XEP  (nominally called XEP-0206 - 
XMPP over BOSH) includes a couple of XMPP-specific extensions and a 
clarification of the best practices. You can see them here:



These documents are complete rewrites, but almost all the changes were 
for clarity (XEP-0124 wasn't a nice document). The few changes are 100% 
backward compatible, with the possible exception of the xmpp:restart 
attribute which enables SASL auth (which was not correctly supported 
properly under the previous version of the protocol).
