As I reported earlier, role-switching was removed from JEP-65 sometime after
it advanced to draft. This is unfair, I think, as these changes didn't have
to be seconded by the members or reviewed by the council. Certainly a JSF
policy change is in order.
Because the authors seem reluctant to put the role-switching feature back, I
have decided to create a custom extension to support it.
Also, after doing some real-world tests with JEP-65, I realized it would be
useful to allow simultaneous connections from both peers, to avoid having to
wait for role-switches to happen. I have called this 'fast-mode.'
I have documented both extensions here:
The extensions were designed with backwards compatibility in mind. Any client
supporting them should have no trouble communicating with those that don't.
I will not be pursuing a JEP. I only mention them here because I would like
comments for improvement.
