reading over jep65 again i miss a feature:
i wonder if it makes sense to define the bytestream type?
GT2.7 i uses GSM for voice streaming. But, because gt does support a 
specific bytestream (type gsm) i respond

    from='target at host2/bar' 
    to='initiator at host1/foo' 
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info'>
    <feature var='http://jabber.org/protocol/bytestreams/gsm'/>

to an iq query.
Especially plain bytestreams with no start and no end don't need a very 
complicative negotiation session before setting up the bytestream. 
Either a client supports gsm or not. same goes with mp3 streams.

Just a thought.
