The above would require changes to the XMPP-IM draft, which goes throug
the IESG, not the JSF Council. However, if you proposed the somewhat
like the following instead:
<presence to='juliet at example.com' type='subscribe'><message
xmlns='some:message-in-presence:namespace'>Hi, its Romeo - I'm dying to
talk to you</message></presence>
This would then need a JEP (to document the
"some:message-in-presence:namespace" extension protocol), which would go
through the council. This is how one would propose additions to the
Jabber/XMPP protocol suite via the JSF.
I am neither condoning nor condenming this course of action. I am
simply noting procedures.
