Jingle doesnt depreciate XEP-0065 as far as I am aware (just 
XEP-0095/96) given that Peter was working on writing a spec so you can 
use XEP-0065 proxys with Jingle. Also if all you are using it for is 
small things like icons or little images then I fail to see what real 
benefits this has over just using IBB given the complexity it will take 
to implement framing in XMPP, if they are small the overall overhead is 
neglidgeable compared so the effort we would all need to go though to 
implement framing.
