I'd say "certainly not!", although <presence> may be eventually since
pubsub will be done using iq. But even then <message> will still be in
I loved the idea of a generic <route> element that carried any type of
data regardless of content. Perhaps now is the time to find a way to
start bringing this up? We obviously could not do a full implimentation
of <route> as we had defined in JNG, but I'm sure we could start with a
"hybrid" model that is more of the current system but takes steps
towards the Ultimate Generic Communications Protocol.
