If we consider XMPP to be the protocol, and Jabber to be the community (HTTP
/ Web), can we not continue to call them JEPs , seeing as how the
enhancements are coming from the Jabber community?

This is similar to the W3C / HTML - the World Wide Web Consortium makes
recommendations / standards.

So, an "About" text on the XMPP site might read:
XMPP.org is the official location for all protocol extensions brought
forward by the Jabber community, known as Jabber Enhancement Proposals.
[insert some text about how these aren't IETF RFCs...or how they relate]

One could move/relocate/refocus protocol-level discussions and activities to
xmpp.org, and Jabber community activities remain centered on jabber.org.

My 2¢ as a brand new JSF member (not XSF).
