It also doesn't look particularly good at requirement #1 ("This protocol
must work everywhere, regardless of network topology"). XEP-0065 is
heaps better with a proxied connection. I'm actually a bit foggy on the
necessity of this HTTP Jingle profile.

How is this related to jingle ?
Looks more like a customization to oob ... we could actually fold the 
listing/preview into oob (or an extension) such that they are relevant 
to other modes of transfer too, not just http.
