[Standards-JIG] UPDATED: JEP-0100 (Gateway Interaction)

Since you brought it up anyhow Peter, I figure I'd object to the 
language in Section 6 with regard to MSN addresses. Specifically, I 
don't like the use of '%' as documented, because it introduces the need 
to do really stupid things like JEP-106. We should just do the right 
thing and allow the use of standard URI encoding on JIDs. I still think 
some characters ('@', '/', '<', etc) should not be allowed in JIDs, 
even when escaped, but I think it's silly that we're planning on 
creating a URI scheme for JIDs and won't be supporting standard URI 

I, personally, could care less about breaking compatibility with legacy 
MSN transports. It would be a fairly quick and simple task to migrate 
users using the legacy substitution to a newer and better system. The 
side effect of this change is that we can (hopefully) avoid this sort 
of stupid nonsense again in the future.

My $.02.
