This document has been placed in the public domain. The authors affirm
that they or their representatives have made no intellectual property
claims associated with the protocols defined in this document. They affirm
additionally that if they or their representatives make any such
intellectual property claim in the future, the protocols defined in this
document will be licensed for use on a royalty-free basis.


Since the JSF does not (yet) have independent legal counsel, I may run
this by counsel at Jabber, Inc.
