""All that being said, in several years when the ideal superspecies of p2p have evolved and taken over the p2p world, my question is: what will have been standardized?"

XML and the concept of GROUPS."

The idea of broadcast groups only works in very small groups. This isn't going to work on any large scale. Like I said, if your application is only small scale and fits with JXTA - that's fine.

But groups are not a central concept in P2P apps by any meaning of the word.
