The issue is that users can be online with multiple xmpp clients at the
same time, so knowing that the message has been delivered to a client isn't
very useful.

What you want to know is if message has been read, this is already the
experience with other non XMPP Services such as iMessage, Facebook, BBM.

iMessage and Facebook for example, marks a message as read when you make
that chat active.
