Well, for background, many people see a problem with the JSF promoting
the name of one particular implementor's product. these people say them
supporting the JSF thus creates unlevel playing field in selling their
own products. I believe their hope was that a different, "XMPP"
brand/certification mark could be pursued instead of a "Jabber" brand/mark.
The final board resolution was that XMPP is not a good brand to adopt
since the XMPP process is not part of the JSF; the name is
pre-established to be associated with the IETF.
The choice is correct in my opinion, but for a very similar reason to
why sticking with "Jabber" brands/marks could be considered a very bad one.
