It seems you didn't read the note at the top of that ;)

The 'var' attribute of the <feature/> element within the
'http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info' namespace may contain any
namespace that is registered with the Jabber Registrar (see
<http://www.jabber.org/registrar/namespaces.html>). This page lists only
additional values that have been separately registered with the Registrar.

<feature var='http://jabber.org/protocol/ibb'/>


There are some clients which really advertise their features this way.


Miranda:
<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info">
<identity category="user" type="client" name="Miranda" />
<feature var="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info" />
<feature var="http://jabber.org/protocol/muc" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:agents" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:browse" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:oob" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:version" />
<feature var="jabber:x:data" />
<feature var="jabber:x:event" />
<feature var="vcard-temp" />
</query>

Pandion:
<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info">
<identity category="client" type="pc" />
<feature var="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:avatar" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:last" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:oob" />
<feature var="jabber:iq:time" />

</query>
