Relax, Peter. All I see is a huge company implementing XMPP in a 
crippled way and talking about guidelines and agreements with other 
large corporate entities. Is it that surprising that this gets me 
suspicious? I can see where you're coming from but please keep this 
information asymmetry in mind. You see to know what their long term 
plans are and why they don't have S2S (at the moment) I didn't know 
anything about that until a few minutes ago.

Waiting is fine with me if you've heard that some cool stuff is coming 
that's going to make us happy. OTOH if they are still trying to figure 
out how they are going to deal with all the other XMPP servers out there 
I don't see why we should wait with getting into contact with them. They 
even ask on their development page if interested parties can contact 
them to talk about federation related issues. IMO the JSF is (or should 
be) one of these parties.
