Ok, so suppose that a server on the outside is used together with 
OOB. The standard says nothing about the client automatically 
uploading files to a server or even that the client should 
automatically download a file from the server (although I guess 
that's sort of given). My question is: Was this the reason for this 
JEP being put in a Historical state, I mean the lack of clear specifications?
