[Council] VOTE[JEP-22]: -1

Ok...a few questions...

I like the overall concept. I would like to know why "events" are encoded in
the element name. It would be much more flexible to have something like:

<x xmlns='jabber:x:event'>
  <event name='delivered' id='M_22'/>
</x>

That would allow for new (non-IM) event types to be added without requiring
schema changes. 

I'm also a bit hesitant about having cancellation of events be so implicit.
However, that's not what's incurring the -1 vote; I just want a good
explanation of why it's desirable to hard-code event names into element
names.
