  So, you WANT to be able to filter voicechat?  I'm failing to see what
ANY of this has to do with setting it up via Jabber.  ANY application
can open up a voice conference using existing technologies.  That's what
firewalls are for.  To block and or resitrict access to given things. 
Unless you're talking about implementing a BRAND NEW audio or video
system, I fail to see what relevence this has to do with anything.

  Again, Jabber wouldnt and isn't being discussed as a way to relay the
actual audio and or video data.  Hence, I fail too see what relevence
any of this has to do with using the jabber protocol to negotiate.
