[standards-jig] Standards cleanup...

Hello all,

I just signed a contract with Manning Publications Co. (www.manning.com) to 
write a book that we're tentatively titling "Instant Messaging in Java: The 
Jabber Protocols". I would like to include the Jabber specifications in the 
book as a reference section. My current plan is not to directly include the 
existing specs. Instead, I'm considering reformatting the jabber 
specifications: cleaning up and clarifying ambiguous parts as I go along.

The initial effort would be targeted at my book (the schedule is aggressive 
so I have to focus on one thing at a time). However, my publisher has 
agreed that I can donate the cleaned up spec back to the jabber community 
(probably as a pdf). In addition, I would like to try and convert the 
cleaned up specs back into our standard DocBook XML format to be used as 
the Jabber specs (or at least a foundation for them).

I was wondering how everyone would feel about this. Opinions? Comments?
