[Standards] Draft to Final

Hi,

   A lot of these specs have seen quite radical change recently in 
comparison to the 'lifetime' of the spec. Particularly the PEP & CAPS 
based specs.
There are others which are fairly new (xmpp ping, pep, caps, etc), or 
lot of new changes have been added to them (pubsub, link local messaging).

None of these newer changes have undergone rigorous testing or have much 
implementation experience.
It might be a good idea to wait for a while before considering them for 
pushing to final.

Then we have oob, ibb, muc, chat state notification, privacy lists .. 
these have been fairly stable and have multiple interoperable 
implementations .. seem like good candidates for becoming final.

Regards,
Mridul
