I think Iain's post may have been a bit confusing and I don't even
completely agree with it. :) However, I think what he meant to say is
that *outside of the JSF* there can certainly still be a role for the
Jabber name. So, the JSF wouldn't be using Jabber for any purpose, but
the larger community of XMPP protocol users would be free to use/not use
Jabber as they saw fit. Our proposal only deals with naming of the
protocol standards body, not the larger community of users.
