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.
