If that's true I find the wording »Thus a client supporting this XEP
MUST implement Jingle File Transfer (XEP-0234) [2] and HTTP File
Upload (XEP-0363) [4].« confusing to say the least.

Also I noticed that thumbnails use BOB as a transfer method. I wonder
how this goes along with the statelessness premise of the XEP.
