Personally I would question the value of this overall idea, what benefits 
does it actually bring?, why cant we just do what we do now and send out 
messages once they are finished rather than part completed??, why cant we 
just continue to use the "user is typing" indicators that are already widely 
deployed as they give you a similar level of information without the 
bandwidth wastage?

But in any case this protocol does not seem to really fit with what Chat 
States is intended for, and thus does not belong as an extension of it, this 
needs its own specific optimised protocol to reduce bandwidth waste as much 
as possible, and so that people who dont want to implement it dont have to.
