[Standards-JIG] Line feeds as delimiters

I have a client/customer who wants me to modify the XMPP output to include
line feed characters as stanza delimiters. He claims it will be easier for
him to parse the stanzas from the input stream.

Does this violate the standard?

I think this is a bad idea. The client insists that he'll never send
embedded line feeds in text messages and since XMPP doesn't support CDATA
that this will never be a problem. I'm having a hard time arguing with him.
