Ok. I must have mis-parsed that then. I thought he said acks were bad. For
the implicit feature negotation, it sounded like a good idea to avoid the
<feature/> step since a namespace prefix would have to be defined anyway to
conserve bandwidth. If both ends included it in the <stream> then it would
be safe to ack. If neither or only one did then acks wouldn't be used.
