1. Is the format of this parsed at all anywhere? As the current format
cannot be processed automatically very easily, I expect, that most of
the time, it's just used by user agents displaying the string as is.
2. What would break, if an application cannot parse the result? I don'T
think that jabber:iq:time is used by any important feature. (Again
because the format is not very easy to use at present.)
3. Why not just add the JEP-0082 format timestamp as a new result
element? After some transition time, we could even stop sending the old
