I’m inclined to -1 based on the language. Our main job as council when
accepting proto XEP is to check if the format is correct. (Usually we
take this even further and check if a XEP can be implemented or other
more or less arbitrary criteria). In this particular case however I'm
not really sure if this counts as 'correct format'.
