That is my question too.  The purpose of Jabber was so that we could stop 
being shot in the foot by proprietary lock-out.  We should, if not adopt, 
at least enable simply integration with the IETF protocol.  MIME is also 
good...it has already done all the encoding and transfer work...we can 
just fill <message>s with MIME and not care.
