IIRC we had a rough concensus to create an (almost) duplicate Standards
Track XEP (the difference being that the new XEP would use XEP-0082)?
And *immediately* depricate XEP-0090. The transition should be smooth
because it would be trivial for implementations to respond to both
protocols over a long transition period.

XEP-0154 (User Profile) and PEP.
IMHO search isn't a pretty protocol (for historical reasons). If we make
it Standards Track then now might be a good time to move the protocol
forward another step? (e.g. by depricating the fields outside the x:data
