This raise a more general issue, because several specs (e.g., XEP-0045)
contain MUST/SHOULD references to XEP-0086. Perhaps we can discuss this
briefly during the meeting this Wednesday.

A compliant server or service implementation MUST support both old-style and new-style error handling. A compliant client implementation SHOULD support both. For mappings of HTTP-style errors to XMPP-style conditions, refer to Error Condition Mappings [12].

Good point. In fact there is one other open issue with XEP-0077 so I'll
fix the XEP-0086 reference when I close that other issue.
