[Standards] Jingle refresh

Thanks mostly to feedback from Philipp Hancke (which he's detailed at 
<http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/User:Fippo> for posterity), I'm in the midst 
of updating the core Jingle specs: XEPs 166, 167, 176, and 177. Although 
much has changed in the audio/video world since the Jingle XEPs were 
advanced to Draft in 2009, especially the emergence of WebRTC, Jingle is 
still relevant and its use is not uncommon for media signaling in WebRTC 
applications (e.g., using the jingle.js library). Therefore it seems 
appropriate to give these specs a bit of a refresh, correct errors, 
harmonize them with documentation for trickle ICE 
(draft-ietf-mmusic-trickle-ice) and newer IETF standards such as 
ICE-TCP, and so on.

My goal is to finish the first round of edits by the end of August, then 
ask for wider feedback and review. If you know of issues beyond those 
catalogued at the URL noted above, please feel free to post to the 
standards at xmpp.org or jingle at xmpp.org discussion lists or to file issues 
in the XSF's GitHub repo at <https://github.com/xsf/xeps/>. The truly 
adventurous can watch the changes I'm making in my fork at
