Hello,

+1 for changing Jabber -> XMPP

i don't think we should change all protocols to XMPP.
I normally always use XMPP, but if we talk about some earlier protocols 
which were defined before we even thought about XMPP i say:
"the jabber protocol" or sometimes "the old jabber protocol"

* JEP-0011: Jabber Browsing
* JEP-0012: Last Activity
* JEP-0054: vcard-temp

most of them are the protocols with jabber:iq:* in the namespace.
Some of them are historical or deprecated, but still widely used.
Some of them have supersedes which are active and used, other have 
supersede <http://dict.leo.org/ende?lp=ende&p=/hCiED&search=supersede>s 
which are still in development, or not used because of missing 
client/server support, so we still need them (vcard-temp).

And there is a lot of work related with the name change.
So we should also discuss this:
