Well, if the client is connecting via a translating proxy, you still
have solved nothing. Your proxy also has to use ACK or create some
equivalent hop to hop confirmation mechanism.

I still believe there are two things needed - end to end delivery
notifications for 'at least once' delivery of messages, and separately
- a keepalive mode where a server can send a message which must be
replied to (explicitly by sending stanza back to the server, or
implicitly by sending any other stanza) in order to enforce session
freshness at the application level.
