Those two things do not compete... I have nothing against the
certifications, I even really like it and I would even help with the
certification thing out as I told you a few months ago here in Munich.

Yes, sure. But comeon, we are just a few people in the JSF, we can find
projects that most will like. I just say that XMPP exists for several years
now. And there are hundrets of Jabber/XMPP solutions out there. Most are not
XMPP compliant anymore, many abandoned, many commercial but there is none
that integrates into OS very well. We all expect XMPP to be THE protocol to
handle future presence exchange. It would at least make sense to also argue
about the "default" XMPP OS integration. In example any webbrowser starts up
the default email client when someone clicks on the mailto: link in a
webpage. A JEP about where to store users XMPP accounts in registry would be
good, too. These small features make new ideas to break through. As you can
see, Microsoft integrates it's MSN messenger more and more into windows. We
have to achieve this for jabber, too...
