Oh. 

Really?

I mean, I'd be fine calling the standards body JEP (or something), and
saying that the JEP helps guide the protocol, etc etc.  But I thought the 
name change was because of a confusion in the marketplace over the concept 
of "jabber", and who owns that.

So...would it be sufficient to simply divide the JSF into two
organizational structures, one which promotes the "jabber" community (the
jabber.net/org things listed above), and one which would not have "jabber"
in its name and serve as the open protocol standards organization?
