Not to mention that the proposed idea for implementing encryption over
Jabber doesn't give the same level of privacy guarantees as OTR, nor is
it actually as nice a standard in a lot of other ways.

The average user will never generate an X.509 certificate for
themselves.  Anything based on that kind of technology is broken from
the start.  It's like making an email application that requires the user
be in X.500 directory before it delivers mail.
