As it stands now, the JSF membership does NOT decide on the acceptance of JEPs.
This is done by the Jabber Council. The Standards JIG is the place to discuss
protocols, but this list is not for JSF members only. Everyone can voice his
opinion on the various proposals, and everyone's voice carries the same weight
there, member or non-member.

Changing the JSF structure so that the members of the JSF all belong to teams,
doesn't change this, at all.
