I really would like to make further changes, the version I uploaded is
very much a work in progress 'preview' that is not ready for
implementation yet in my opinion. I understand the purpose of
'experimental' status, but I would rather get things mostly right on
the first attempt than submit a protoXEP that I have substantial
protocol changes queued for.

That said, you can consider even what is there a contribution to the
community, and if people really think it's worthy of submission in its
current state then I won't hold it back. I suggest giving it a week...
if I haven't officially submitted it by then, let's move forward with
the current draft.

The summit highlighted the widespread interest in this spec to me, so
I really shall try my best to get it cleaned up and submitted in the
coming days.
