Right. I want to re-emphasize that the name change proposers feel it is 
essential Jabber Inc continue it's leadership role in our community.

I believe part of that will mean keeping JINC strong (as odd as that 
sounds coming from someone arguing for a level playing field). I would 
hope that this could include JINC retaining it's full Jabber trademark. 
Even though the open protocol standards organization should not use 
'Jabber' it would be great if perhaps the mass market, user-friendly, 
super portal (see jdev@ discussion) to gain market share for Jabber 
usage should be named 'Jabber' or at least have 'jabber' in it's name 
(and use the domain jabber.net - or jabber.org).
