I agree that the protocol is implementation specific within a Jabber
server's components.

But perhaps we need a standard <message/> rejection protocol that proxies
can use? For example, today there are many external HTTP connection manager
implementations that act as proxies.

On the other hand, once JEP-0124 is finished, if each server implements a
JEP-0124 connection manager in parallel with its XMPP connection manager,
then the need for those proxies will disappear. :)

Are there any other situations where proxies are needed?
