[JDEV] Stream Negotiation Protocol

Currently there is the DSPS effort for establishing a bytestream between JIDs
via a proxy component. Establishing a stream between two JIDs opens up a lot
of possibilities (see the DSPS JEP-37 for some ideas), most importantly file
transfer. However, there are still two parts of the puzzle missing: a
stream negotiation protocol, to allow clients to decide on the best stream
method to use, and an actual file transfer protocol.
Today I wrote the following document:
It describes both a stream negotiation protocol and a simple file transfer
protocol. It is all completely independent of the actual stream protocol
used. I describe a "Direct TCP" method in the document for simplicity's
sake, however it would work for any stream transport (ie, DSPS or whatever).
Should I send this to the standards-jig list also? This is my first attempt
at contributing to the Jabber protocol, so I'm not familiar with the process.
