Yes and no. It may be worthwhile to have the administration features a 
part of the protocol so that there is a standard way to configure 
'Jabber' servers, and these methods can be implemented in jabber 
clients. From that point of view it is a standards-jig topic in that we 
want the additions to the protocol to make sense.

Now I may agree that at this point it might not be time yet to post such 
discussion here. What I really need now is feedback from jabber server 
operators about said list. Once I have something resembling protocol 
chunks would probably be a better time to air it here.

Also, the discussion of whether or not to include adminstration of 
jabber servers in the protocol at all is a discussion for standards-jig.

I personally would like administration of the server to be 
server-implementation independant so that the server-implementation 
becomes a swapable component.
