I continue to think that changes to the RFCs need to happen through the 
Internet Standards Process, not in the JSF.

Other quick comments:

1. Why do we need the "correspondent" type? Just add someone to your 
roster and use the "subscription" type. Forcing the server to keep track 
of everyone you have communicated with in the last year seems like 
overkill to me.

2. The matching rules specified in Section 10.1 of RFC 3921 imply that 
the proposed "domain" type is unnecessary.

I have to think about the challenge action some more, since it seems to 
me that the success or failure of the challenge is a precondition to 
deciding whether to allow or deny...
