> Well, feedback would be good. My impression is that people haven't implemented and deployed XEP-0013 very much. If that's false or if you find it useful, please speak up. :-)

Personally I don't find XEP-0013 very useful and others probably, too, which might be a reason, that it's not widely implemented.

From an end user's perspective (client) I wouldn't want to first retrieve the number of offline messages, then the headers and then retrieve single messages and maybe even delete some of them (purge).
I'd rather just want to retrieve all full offline messages directly, in the same way as I would retrieve them while being online.

But maybe others have some good use cases for it.
