Actually, I don't think this is true. If the JSF can agree to remove 
Jabber from it's name and to not use Jabber in the name of official 
protocol extensions for compliance purposes (such as "Jabber IM Basic 
1.0"), then that should free you from having to try to explain the 
difference between an open protocol and your products to your customers, 
the press, etc. You'd then be more free to use the Jabber brand to 
promote your commercial products, which is your right. So, the change 
really seems to benefit all of us, including Jabber Inc at the end of 
the day.

Regards,
Matt
