Thank you for your opinion to support using HTTP as an encapsulation for 
file transfers.

I have been advocating for using HTTP to do file transfers for a long 
time, even when XEP-0096 has been written.

I am also very much for using an HTTP layer inside Jingle file 
transfers, as we get many features and extensions that are defined for 
HTTP for free without the need to create new protocols for that again.
