Great Suggestion Michael, Steve Lee would you be willing to volunteer to
head up a strawman for this?

> Regardles of the position of Jabber, Inc., I think it might be in the

> the term Jabber as a secondary adjective for their primary brand name,
> like this:

> The Persimmon Jabber Server
> The Papaya Jabber Client

> Of course, there are a whole set of uses that can be proscribed.
> Traditionally, this even includes font and logos.  Of course, the
> Foundation isn't going to specify an official font, but it might specify
> things like if Jabber is going to be used in a stylized font, it has to
> stand alone and can't be distorted, like having the "e" in Jabber facing
> backwards.

> It would be interesting to see if there was some way to come up with a
> solution to this problem from the Foundation's perspective.  I think some
> guidelines would be useful to help insure the brand's integrity.
> Regardless, some kind of independent statement might be useful.
