Hi Matthias.

Sorry about the email. I looked through my inbox and didn't see anything 
about that from you, so I might have ended up accidentally deleting it 
with the spam (i get about 50+ a day).

My answer is that it would be great for this to be adopted beyond 
Jabber, but right now it is built for the Jabber platform, so I don't 
feel bad about it having the name "Jabber" in it. When it becomes more 
widely adopted outside Jabber, hopefully someone will take the 
initiative to add in other icon-like things to the spec such as Avatars 
and Presence Icons, and rename it to something more general. Maybe 
"gisp", then "Generic Icon Style Package".   :-)
