I was reading through the PubSub discussion, and saw the topic of 
whiteboarding mentioned. I'm not entirely sure as to why you would want to 
run a whiteboard over PubSub. If you're wanting to whiteboard with a group of 
people, MUC should do just fine. I was playing with Coccinella one night, and 
managed to get into jdev with it--no thanks to Coccinella's gui. I opened up 
my xml console in psi so I could see if Coccinella sent whiteboarding data to 
everyone else in the room, and it did. Since it made use of <x/> stanzas it 
didn't show up in regular groupchat clients. They still received the data, 
but happilly ignored it.

Basically I see no need for whiteboarding over PubSub. Unless of course MUC is 
going to be changed so it runs on top of PubSub, but I see no need for that 
either even though MUC is an extremely basic publish-subscribe service.

Nolan Eakins
