- No, don't use <body>
- Yes, custom events in your own custom namespace is the way to go.
Whether you want to use <messages> or <iq> is up to you. Make sure
that, if you use <messages>, you use XEP-0079 to make sure that
messages are not stored offline on the server.
- No, there are no guidelines on this.
