[JDEV] More avatar thoughts

Not to muddy the waters and start a never-ending message
thread, but.... :-)

Wouldn't the avatar be considered some type of profile
information for a user?  if that's the case, why not
standardize on a name like "profile:avatar"?

And while I'm at it, does anyone see a similarity (in
general terms) to a V-Card?  A person's avatar or business
card seem to me to be profile-type information.  And there
is a lot MORE profile stuff we might want to send.

Just food for thought...

I move for storage:avatar.  I feel fine tabelling OOB until
we work out
it's details some more.  Standards JIG is getting rolling
and we'll
tackle that one soon enough.  Any other tweaks before we
write this up
and submit it for approval?
