XEP is far more descriptive. These protocols extend a protocol we've all 
agreed to call XMPP.

If we use XEP then we won't have to explain to the newbies why the 
authorittive extensions are called JEPs not XEPs.

Yes. Changing the name to XEP can only help us to 'position' our protocols 
in that way.

And by claiming the XEP name (and the associated numbering sequence) for its 
protocols, the JSF will disuade other corporations or organisations from 
using it in the future.
