To be clear: in my earlier comment, I meant to convey that we were 
working in the general space of XMPP security, not with authentication 
in particular. We don't have a proposal that fills the same niche you're 
looking at. :)

Some of our discussions have dealt with pseudonyms and anonymous 
identifiers, which may interact with what you're thinking of doing (I 
actually haven't had time to look at it yet); and it was on that front 
that I thought we should maybe touch base.

I'll be sure to ping you when we start moving the ball forward again.
