<option/> should not be used when submitting; in that case, only use
<value/>.  XEP-0163 should be corrected.

This might seem like an asymmetry in XEP-0004 (forms to fill out and
submitted forms having different elements), but it really isn't.  In
both cases, the current value is inside the bare <value/> element, and
the possible values are in <option/> elements.  Of course, it doesn't
make sense to specify which options are valid when submitting a form,
so the <option/> elements are dropped in that case.
