Well, if we decide to use EXMPP (being that XMPP is the IETF protocol's
name - we might as well call ours Extended XMPP, although "Extended
eXtensible" sounds rather funny (even though that's exactly what the
Jabber protocol suite is) ... how about "Enhanced eXtensible Messaging
and Presence Protocol" instead?), I've preemptively registered EXMPP.org
so we don't get a repeat of XMPP.org with EXMPP.org happening.

BTW - My offer to transfer the domain to the JSF free of charge (assuming
the decision is made to use EXMPP.org, of course) doesn't expire when
my JSF membership probably does, in a few days.  I bet some of y'all
are really happy to finally get rid of me ;-P

It's simple, Skyler.  You've seen what food processors do to food, right?
