Sounds good.

Open standards, baby! Not sure you need to join some developer program
to work on XMPP-based applications. :-)

Those numbers sound like overkill based on what I know.

Never a bad idea. The squeaky wheel and all that.

Until last week, Peter Millard would have been a good person to talk
with since he was server team lead at Jabber Inc. also the main admin
for the jabber.org server (which he transitioned to ejabberd at the end
of February). But I've forwarded your contact info to others at J.Inc
and hopefully they will get back to you. (Note to list admins: please
remove pgmillard's email address from the subscriber list.)
