I have reviewed this document as part of the Operational directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
operational area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should
treat these comments just like any other last call comments.

This document defines how to run XMPP over WebSockets. The intended
status is standards track. I believe the document is in a good shape
and basically ready to go. In particular, I do not see that the XMPP
over WebSockets specification creates any operational issues.

Some editorial nits:

- Sec 1: The term 'raw socket' can be potentially mis-understood,
  perhaps simply remove 'over row sockets' completely (I think the
  message of the sentence remains intact without these words).

- Sec 3.1: The text says that both client and server MUST have |xmpp|
  in the list of protocols for the |Sec-WebSocket-Protocol| header.
  The text does not detail what happens if this is not the case. Is
  there be a defined behavior if this protocol negotiation fails?

- Sec 3.6.1: There is a closing parenthesis missing at the end of the
  first paragraph.

- Sec 3.9: Word missing in "it MUST be enabled the WebSocket layer",
  perhaps you meant "it MUST be enabled _by_ the WebSocket layer"?
