Maybe in the concept of Jabber as a huge semi store-and-forward server 
for filetransfers flow Control might not be required (though I woudln't 
want that on *my* server). However there are many more uses that 
absolutly require flowcontrol, such as sending realtime dynamic data. 
<iq> can do flowcontrol very easily. <message> could do flow control 
too, with the help of JEP-22 (Message Events). However this JEP is 
informational and not standards track.
