Just a clarification....I also did not attend this meeting....it was
attended by Joe Hildebrand and Frank Cardello from Jabber, Inc.,  as well as
Lisa Dusseault, the XMPP Working Group co-chair. It was an informal meeting
requested by some of the SIMPLE folks to discuss whether there may be enough
common ground for the XMPP and SIMPLE camps to work on a common
server-to-server interop protocol.  No plans, decisions or commitments have
or would be made without appropriate socialization within the JSF and the
XMPP/Jabber community.  As Peter indicated, there will likely be some
additional discussions at the next IETF meeting in Minneapolis.
