Well, actually, UDP for file transfers can be desirable if you want to  
circumvent NAT. :) So UDP can work where TCP doesn't. Of course, you  
then need integrity checks.

Streaming audio/video where you can seek? :)
Maybe this should be implemented in Jingle Audio/Video and not in  
Jingle File Transfers. But OTOH, seeking in File Transfers would allow  
something like XMPPFS :). If you are just thinking about resuming:  
That's already possible, even with the old SI transfers.
