I am afraid there is more than just examples. Let me show you:
6 Formal Description
The "host" attribute specifies the host to connect to. This
attribute MUST be present. The value MUST be either a resolvable
domain name or the "dotted decimal" IP address (e.g. "22.214.171.124").
Unfortunately there is nothing about "coloned hexadecimal"
notation here. I'd say the description, not only examples,
BTW. SOCKS5 is IPv6 ready but it is irrelevant here as ATYP
is never anything else than 3.
JEP-0177 (and after careful reading JEP-0176 too)
9 XML Schemas
And here anything else thant IPv4 is strictly prohibited :-(
IMHO JEP-0065 is at best unclear about IPv6 and Jingle
transport JEPs rigorously define ip attribute format suitable
only for IPv4 addresses :-(
