Well said.

Jabber is to XMPP as Web is to HTTP.

Therefore JSF is to the IETF's XMPP WG as W3C is to the IETF's HTTP WG.

Right now we seem stuck in IM because that's what we're still developing
to feature-completeness. Personally I can't wait to get beyond that so
we can define Jabber Calendaring, Jabber Whiteboarding, and many other
real-time applications.
