Heh, true. No need to have a specialized protocol where the server needs
to keep track of who has "registered" for STUN server "events". Make it
an open-access node so that anyone can request the last event. Etc. But
you wouldn't get any kind of token from the XMPP server that way, only
the STUN server host+port.
