The fact that over XMPP you discover translation services using JEP-0030
(Service Discovery) does not mean that you can't discover them in other
ways using other protocols. So even if discovering translation services
via JEP-0030 is a SHOULD or MUST in XMPP band, that's what I call a
hypothetical imperative: if you discover via XMPP, you MUST use JEP-0030
(but if you discover outside the XMPP band, use some other mechanisms
that are defined elsewhere).

The interop testing planned for July will cover RFCs 3920 and 3921 only
(plus, perhaps, JEP-0030).
