Well, OAuth and Data Portability are two different things. OAuth lets
you authorize other entities to access your information (e.g., if you
wanted a FOAF service to access your roster), whereas Data Portability
lets you export your data (so that you could take your roster somewhere
else). The portability problem is harder in XMPP because all of those
presence subscriptions assumed you had one identity and now you have
another. But naturally we could try to solve that problem. Perhaps we
can discuss that at the devcon in a few weeks...

Oh, and why isn't your blog syndicated at Planet Jabber? ;-)
