No, take a look at the jabber:iq:browse documentation (both the old
stuff and the new JEP) - iq:browse is specifically *for* namespace
discovery on Jabber end points. Add-ons would be in their own namespace,
and therefore would be listed in iq:browse, so you need not develop
another namespace for querying add-ons.
