I am new to XMPP and reading through http://xmpp.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-xmpp-3920bis-22.html#tls-rules-mtn
WRT "If the receiving entity advertises only the STARTTLS feature or if the receiving entity includes the <required/> child element as explained under Section 5.4.1, the parties MUST consider TLS as mandatory-to-negotiate".
So I see how the receiving entity can require STARTTLS by including <starttls><required/><starttls> in the stream features returned in response to the initial stream. However, I don't understand how the initiator can signal STARTTLS is required. Can the initiator send a stream features when opening the stream?
