+1 on getting rid of Jabber:

- less of a difference now:
- Sounds like "chat". I believe XMPP is much more than chat.
- dilutes any branding by having to say "We work with Jabber, I mean
XMPP or you know the thing that used to be called Jabber"
- XMPP sounds like a proper, serious, organisation. Jabber not so much.
