That's a really good point.  Perhaps as a result of this certification
(and official JSF program), specifically the criteria we use would
help move XMPP in the right direction to be 'THE' protocol.  For
example maybe a client must pass JEPs x, y and z to get a basic level
of certification, but to go further it must have some level of native
OS integration?
