Im kinda curious about the message type usage in JEP0022. In the jep
the examples messages are sent with no type attribute...
Even tho the type attribute in a message packet isnt really that
important, and really only holds UI style relevance, there is a certain
level of relativity you should keep. For instance... if I am holding a
conversation with someone, who also supports jabber:x:events, and the
messages that are going back and forward between the two users have
attrib type="chat" in them, shouldnt the events hold the same attribute
type="chat"? The argument that would go against this is of course the
fact that messages without a body shouldnt be sent with a type... but
thats where i disagree, because if that was the case... then the
attribute type would hold a little more importance than just a UI
aspect, would it not?
wouldnt it be cleaner, to structure event packets around the same base
of the message packets that you are sending around them? I mean, for
clients that support threads, they all keep the thread information in
tact, why should this be any different for the parent node of the packet?
I dunno, it doesnt really make much sense to me.
