Hello Philipp

Thanks for your comment. Just wanted to point out the possibility as such, even though it would probably not be used by the web server. Since content is normally returned based on query parameters and request headers, the actual content selection would probably be made by the underlying web server, and it would return the corresponding stream. But since there are formats including multiple streams, my thought was to point out the possibility of using this fact, as a possibility to optimize performance in such cases.

What do you refer to, when you say the "new jingly-pub stuff"? 

Best regards,
Peter Waher

one thing I noticed:
	Using Jingle in this way makes it possible for an intelligent
	server to return multiple streams the client can choose from,
	something that is not done in normal HTTP over TCP. The first
	candidate should however correspond to the same stream that
	would have been returned if the request had been made using
	normal HTTP over TCP.

That is not how candidates or ice work. You want either multiple contents or the new jingle-pub stuff.
