> Some comments on draft-miller-impp-jabber-00.txt:
>    * The second paragraph of section 6 seems to say that you
>      don't have a server/server protocol; is that correct?
>    * Sending MIME objects out of band is problematic.  It has
>      security problems because there's no standard mechanism
>      available (until/unless WebDAV ACLs get adopted) to put
>      something on an HTTP server and control who can get at it;
>      and it has usability problems because there's no good way to
>      tell how long the object should stay on the server.
>    * Statements such as "All the new functionality is immediately
>      available to any application utilizing Jabber or any entity
>      available via the abstraction layer" don't really belong in
>      a protocol spec; beyond the usual prejudice against
>      jingoism, what you're saying here is true for any protocol.
