So, if we want to keep the "type" semantics, to mark the type of a message
we should extend it at least by a "notification" type, for pub-sub

Now they are unrecognizable from normal plain messages.

We could extend JEP-0013 to show "type" while browsing and accept
"type" while fetching.

Not only. Messages deliver <subject/> and chats deliver <thread/>.
