The old Jabber search protocol did not enable the searched entity to
specify required fields. In order to do that, it's best to use Data
Forms (JEP-0004) and just use <query xmlns='jabber:iq:search'> as a 
wrapper for the x:data form.

Feel free to post to the Standards-JIG list with further questions so
that the answers can get into the public record.
