Like Iain, I think the idea of a JANA is necessary, but unlike him I 
feel it is best as a sub-group of JSF, both short and long term.

I put my +1 in for a small (3 person) group to oversee the 
administration and standardization of namespaces and "JID types".

One question: how would JEPs approved by the Council work with JANA? 
would JANA be obligated to accept jid types and namespaces that are in 
JEPs approved by the council, or should JEPs not even suggest or include 
jid types or namespaces, leaving that up to the JANA?
