In the client I work on (BuddySpace) I use a 2 field (JID resp. URI and 
namespace) message for communication between plug-ins and recently also 
for local storage of bookmarks. It seems to me very similar to idea, 
which I liked, posted by Peter some time ago:

Though my bookmarks are partially machine dependant, I'd like to store 
them on the server. Then, I'd like to store items with my own namespaces 
or types probably in more general structure than the two types mentioned 
in the JEP048.

The question then is, which way is the best one:
a) add my own types into the JEP048
b) store the other types of bookmark items in a seperate part of 

Thanks, Jiri
