Not tired. I've removed the offending parenthetical :-)


However, I did amend the Security Considerations based on the prior discussion here, stating that if the XMPP over WebSocket service is provided as an intermediary between the XMPP server and client, then it SHOULD use an encrypted channel between itself and the XMPP server. Likewise, a client would need to use e2e encryption if it truly wants data privacy as there's no way to prove that the WS intermediary really is using encryption to the XMPP server. (The same considerations that apply for BOSH services)
