> Unfortunately, he sent his message to the wrong email list (Standards

> Standards JIG list and by Rob Norris and myself on the Members list.
> Because of the confusion, I think it would be advisable to poll the

> have concerns or objections to issuing the Last Call, please raise them

Still not convinced that we should not be using % as the escaping specifier,
surely we should stick with established standards, its only legacy
implementations that would be affected by using % and all of those will need
updating anyway to conform with the new XMPP specs, why not update any
implementations using % at the same time.
