Dang. Annoyingly, I have another objection.

JEP-0092 is an informational JEP, which "defines an existing protocol
in use within the Jabber community". The existing protocol doesn't
have this field or others. Therefore, an informational JEP probably
shouldn't include them.

Would it be at all useful for me to write up a new standards-track JEP
that incorporates the new fields?
