[Standards-JIG] JEP-0008 vs. JEP-0027

As I understand JEP-0008 was Retracted, becouse it used <presence/> 
packet incorrectly sending jabber:x: informations to an entity that 
neither requested it or understands it, thus being network heavy.

eg.

<presence ... >
  ...
  <x xmlns='jabber:x:avatar'>
    <hash>SHA1 of image data</hash>
  </x>
</presence>


Why then JEP-0027 is still active, though it is designed the same way, 
and sends superfluous data to an entity not requesting it.

eg.

<presence ... >
  ...
  <x xmlns='jabber:x:signed'>
    PGP sign data
  </x>
</presence>


Souldn't it be Retracted also?
