[standards-jig] Future direction for the protocol

This is how I view the use of the three elements

1. iq for telling the server what do you have, What I want, etc. Subscribe
to data and Publish to Server

2. Presence to tell the server - Hey I am online now, please send me stuff

3. Message to send the actual data. The message element already supports
'headline'.

Regards,
Ashvil
