[JDEV] Message timestamps

I'm wondering if the Jabber <message> tag shouldn't contain some sort of
(optional) timestamp, which would be useful for figuring out when you
received an offline message.  I just received two offline messages on my
Jabber server and I have no idea when they were sent.
The format should probably be:
where the <timestamp> tag contains the time the message was sent, in ISO
8601 format (yyyymmddThh:mm:ss).
I also note that the ICQ message protocol includes a timestamp for delivery
of "offline" messages when you first log in, which could be translated
directly across to this format.  Just some food for thought.
