Your proposal was never accepted, so it never became a JEP. Therefore to
say that "the JEP is rejected" is untrue. Rejected means a proposal was
accepted as a JEP, was assigned a JEP number, and was subsequently voted
by the Jabber Council to a status of Rejected.


That said, it is possible that upon further reflection the 2005-2006
Jabber Council would accept your proposal as a JEP after this thread has
ended (perhaps along with proposals from Dave Cridland or others).

Yes, I need to look at that more thoroughly myself, though I did post a
few messages in reply to Dave last week.
