[Council] VOTE: JEP-0073 (Basic IM Protocol Suite)

The Introduction history lesson almost made me miss the final bit about 
what the JEP really does.  While this could be nice for people that 
don't know the order of events, people that read this JEP might already 
know all of that and end up skipping the crucial bits.

Before I can vote I also need clarification on this sentence in Section 

(note that this entire JEP applies to software implementations, not 
necessarily to particular deployments thereof)

I understand the intent, but in practice it seems to horribly break 
things.  It means I'm using a stamped basic level client to try and 
connect to a stamped basic server, but then bam, things aren't working. 
  What happens when a deployment doesn't have disco, or I'm expecting 
in-band registration to exist?  It just seems like this could 
potentially damage a user experience, and create headaches for 
developers that are trying to work with this JEP which ties all the 
other techs into one heading.  Is it too idealistic to state that 
claiming Basic IM Suite means you actually provide it all?
