excellent, thank you.

i have some glossary terms for it, from my work on creating profiles for 

User = a generic user of the Jabber platform, using their own Jabber 

Owner = the owner of the Jabber account, as opposed to another user 
communicating with the Owner.

Other = a User that is not the owner of the jabber account, such as 
someone who does an IQ request on the owner.

Profile = a set of structured information about the Owner or the 
account, stored in a Jabber namespace. Information such as residential 
address, bookmarks, or message filtering rules.

Permissions = rules granting access to an Other to read an Owner's 
Profile. Granted on a Profile-by-Profile basis.
