True, but I think you would have a very hard time justifying the effort
required to support this when we already have IQ, I very much doubt you
would get this protocol approved, plus you couldnt really do it in a JEP
since the part of the protocol that would have to be modified (XMPP-Core i
would have thought) is under control of the IETF not the JSF, overall I
think you are fighting a lost cause here, I very much doubt you will be very
far with this as far as standardisation goes.
