After some thinking, I guess I will split my proposal into three XEPs:

1. Service Provider including section 4. I will also add
   variable monitoring to it.

2. Client-to-Client Communication including section 6. After reading
   some more XEPs, I guess jingle is the way to go to open the stream
   between clients. I will change that.

3. Authorization Service will include sections 7 and 8.

Sections 3 and 5 will be moved to one of these three, I'm not sure

I would like to start with the first one, sending it to the XMPP
council next week. One question: the doc says I should send it to
http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/. But looking at that dir, I see
only html files. Doesn't it make more sense to upload the xml file?
What is the correct way to do this?
