[Standards-JIG] JEP-0136: server-side support?

There has been some discussion on the subject of server autoarchiving previously, "JEP-0136: Message Archiving" <http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.network.jabber.standards-jig/9883>

The conclusion that I came to is that server-side autoarchiving should be added as an extension to JEP-0136 for several reasons. The leading reason is that I do not want to delay the acceptance of JEP-0136 by adding server-side functionality that has not been hashed out. There are also some technical issues with server-side autoarchiving, specifically, encrypted conversations.

All of these issues have been discussed in the discussion thread I referenced.

JEP-0136 is good as far as it goes, but I wonder:

1. Wouldn't it be useful to have this be a feature that you can tell
your server to switch on so that you don't have to archive the messages

2. Wouldn't it be useful to be able to toggle archiving on a per-contact
basis (on for jer at jabber.org, off for stpeter at jabber.org, etc.)?

3. If this were a server-side feature, wouldn't it be friendly for
server1 to tell server2 when it toggles support so that server1 can
disable archiving on its side, as well?

This would make life simpler for the client, it seems to me.
