[Standards-JIG] Chat Session Negotiation

Agreed. I would not deny this. In an XMPP only context this is one possible
way of looking at it. And in such context a well behaved client may probably
clean up all negotiated message sessions prior to logging out/appearing
offline. Or put it this way, this is what I would require a proper client to
do ;)

What I was hinting at was more in a context where XMPP and other protocols
need to be bridged through some gateway. Mixing messages and presences would
add complexity by forcing the GW to be statefull.

  But, doesn't an offline presence message infer a BYE?  ;-)
