currently thumbnails are transmitted using http(s) or BoB (XEP-0231). But 
with resolutions we can have todays even on small screens, size of images 
is growing. Transmitting them using BoB can block the connection and is a 
useless waste of bandwidth. I'm thinking about P2P transmission, so http is 
not an option here. As XEP-0234 is able to transmit several files in the 
same session, it would be a good candidate for that.

Doesn anybody see an issue with using XEP-0234 for that? If no I'll propose 
the change on the XEP.
