First.. it is not me who have written the document.. 

It seems like this is what Skype does to establish a stream. 

I would prefer if this could be done in colaporation with the central
Jabber server, which could be used to exchange the portnumbers, etc. 

I have by now no idea of the success rate.. but I really think that
transferring the streams over the central server should be the last
available option.
