Honestly, I would take all of these arguments for getting rid of the 
word "Jabber" a lot more seriously if they weren't only coming from 
solely commercial sources. These arguments that "the community will 
grow if we call ourselves the [insert your word here] Software 
Foundation" fall short of inspiration. I agree that naming is important 
- -- but getting rid of the name of the COMMUNITY that built this 
phenomenon seems unwise. Any person who has ever tried to build a 
community will tell you that changing from an established, known name 
to something else _will_ hurt community recognition (and likely 
growth/adoption).

Of course, I suppose I'm a "bad guy", given that I work for JINC, so 
what do I know?
