Now I don't follow the IMPP work (if there has indeed been any yet) but
there is one big issue we must keep an eye on.

If the IMPP standard assumes a system of centralized servers, Jabber will
be more or less incapable of supporting it: which Jabber server will the
other systems send messages to? Of course, we could create a global
gateway server, but that would be very un-Jabber and kind of difficult to

If the issue have already been decided in favour of distributed systems,
please forgive my ignorance, otherwise, we may have a problem.

And we who listen to the sky, or walk the dusty grade,
Or break the very atoms down, to see how they are made,
Or study cells, or living things, seek truth with open hand;
The profoundest act of worship is to try to understand.

-- Catherine Faber, "The Word of God"
