ICE-based transfers would be the current way to work around firewall issues, but it's not a very simple approach for initial implementations (we've seen this same problem on the audio side). Simple UDP and TCP proxy specifications for Jingle would go a long way towards solving that problem.
I know it's not the topic at hand, but it's related: libjingle 0.4.0
was released this past week, with support for Google Talk's file
transfer protocol (which does use ICE). I intend to write a XEP up to
describe the protocol, and submit it as a Jingle content type for
review Monday or early next week.

much simpler than audio over ICE, but I totally agree that ICE is
really complicated for just an example. A file transfer content type
coupled with a simple TCP transport would make an ideal one.
