[Standards-JIG] XEP-0136 Thoughts and Musings

Section 5.2 forbids logging Message Thread Identifiers. It seems like
these would be very natural ways of grouping messages, and tagging with
metadata. Many clients use these today. Why are they forbidden?


It depends on XEP-0189 (Public Key Publishing). This XEP needs to be
moved along to Draft. 


Collections seem insufficient for given heavy IM usage over a long
period of time. A Mechanism to tag collections with keywords and
metadata seems needed. The <note/> mechanism that's there seems
insufficient. An automated mechanism for having the server create
collections based on conversations, and dates seems like it would be


Being able to add tasks and other items into these collections, such as
"Task Item", "Important!" or "Follow up on 11/29/2006" would be nice. I
don't want to spec all these now, but having a mechanism for adding them
later is needed. 


Conversations that migrate from 1:1 to MUC don't seem to be addressed.
