Hello, Matthew!

On 20 Feb 2003 09:04:53 -0800, you said:

Agreed, but "The payload can be any elements in an extension namespace" still
says that <command/> can't contain all namespaces,

 MAM> and the second is vague.


 MAM> Now for the second argument.  What exactly in x-commands is "hard

Not hard, it "more hard" that it can be to solve one simple task: to address IQ
to node.

I not say that x-commands are bad, but they are bad to solve task of addressing
to node, when we not want to track session, or to know status, etc...  This is
separate things, so I prefer to see how your JEP solves its task, but not
addressing to node.  IMHO this is separate task.
