Hi David,

Yes, I think so. Many thanks for your kind cooperation.
But we could perhaps have some response from the MUC JEP maintainers
so that this point could be properly defined there. Although the JEP
desn't say much about jabber:iq:browse, it is of vital importance
for developers how the MUC and browse cooperate.
It is this kind of design decisions that are so important for future
development. A wrong decision, and you get stabbed in the back in the future.
(Sorry for my imaginative language)

Best Wishes,   Mats
