Yes what about leaving JEPs as they are (so we can continue to handle 
any organisational stuff) and moving only final and draft proposals over 
to XEPs, i.e. once something is declared pretty much done and ready to 
implement, this helps avoid cluttering up the XEPs with protocols which 
might not end up going anywhere, it would be certainly handy and easier 
to understand for new comers if the XEPs are just the protocols that are 
done and dusted and ready for implementation and JEPs are the works in 
progress stuff that shouldn't necessarily be implemented unless you are 
looking to beta test it, we might also want to consider using xmpp.org 
in the namespaces rather than jabber.org for any protocols moved over to 
XEPs.
