[Standards] Proposed XMPP Extension: STUN ServerDiscovery forJingle

I didn't propose a public TURN server. Yes, that would be a crazy idea.
:) STUN is a somewhat special case because it requires two public IP
addresses from the server. Openfire can now act as a STUN server, but
the two IP address requirement makes that a bit of a setup burden.

Regards,
Matt
