Yes, but a provisional registration based on an expired
draft is "suboptimal", a permanent registration based on
*some kind of public standard* (not necessarily an RFC)
is better.  

My "marauder's map for the IETF labyrinth" (aka Brian's 
procdoc ION) indicates that XMPP is an SDO with some kind
of IETF liaison, an "XEP" might be good enough.  Okay, if
Graham is no Harry Potter or XMPP fan you need an RFC :-)

Maybe discuss it with the XMPP community or XMPP Council
or whatever it takes - the SPF organization is far simpler,
we have only one RFC to guard, or four counting those that
we never wanted.  If nobody needs the header field anymore
don't waste time with it.

Good, and what I had in mind doesn't exist anymore, better.
