I think the concept of portability is still relevant, it's just expanded
beyond a file sent between individuals. If XSPF's goal was to make
playlists portable between people, maybe JSPF is to make a common protocol
for sharing playlists between RESTful services. Whether the .jspf is a
static file or transient response shouldn't really matter to whatever
application or player is consuming it.
