Well, I think we shouldn't use Jingle at all for transfering encrypted  
messages. It just adds too much complexity IMO and I don't always want  
a direct connection. Of course, I could use IBB, but do we really need  
Jingle to transfer it in our XMPP stream? The answer is clearly no.  
Plus, server admins might block IBB to save traffic, because they  
don't want for example Jingle Video traffic transfered in-band and  
thus disable Jingle IBB. I'm therefore for not using Jingle as a  
transport layer, but have some transport layer for c2c encryption only.
