[Council] VOTE: JEP-0013 (Flexible Offline Message Retrieval)

I would like to plead bad timing of this vote and OSCON.  I've been 
looking at this JEP and I have some big concerns.

When I come back from vacation and try to wade through my emails.  I 
have a big advantage: Subjects.  I can quickly tell what the message is 
about.  Why are subjects missing from the JEP?

Not to mention the type of the message?  If someone just chats with me I 
can probably ignore those, but if someone sends me a normal I might care 
more.  Or maybe the other way around...

And what about threads?  Reading one message out of 50 in a row might be 
misleading, I need them all.

I can see the need for this JEP, and I can see how it's useful for 
crossover into other areas (IMAP, Usenet, etc...)  I think that this JEP 
doesn't take Jabber and the IM model into account very well.

How does the size of the disco <item/> compare to the message it is 
hiding?  If they are close to the same length, then what is payoff for 
those mobile users?

I need to think on this a little more before I give my vote.  I will 
look and ponder and give a vote tomorrow.
