You know what Justin, maybe we could just use <message/>. However I 
propose that you, as editor of this JEP will make sure that IBB packets 
get flagged as evil: http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0076.html 

That way, when I step on the UTP cable of my desktop machine, my 
cellphone can actually warn me it's going to be downloading 500 MB 
worth of message stanzas for the next few days.... now if only I could 
get a JEP accepted that will make the council pay my phonebill :) 

(Ok, so it's a bad joke... please don't hate me list people!)
