_STANDARD_ emoticons is rather impossible I think. If you have :-) as 
emoticon today, then sb. else will want :-( tomorrow and :-s the day 
after tomorrow. Maybe that you can define a core set (and even then), 
but you have to leave space for others.

50K message bodies? I think you misunderstand the JEP: an emoticon has 
to be send anyway, but is doesn't include the whole styles.jisp, because 
that one stays on each client side. It's the client who decides how a 
eg. :-) will be "translates" in graphic.

Plz don't forget http://users.pandora.be/cobnet/Werkmap/jep0038.html, 
when considering this JEP. If Theo wouldn't have time to update the JEP, 
I could do it (but I don't have that much time).
