Yes, I'd like to know if my attention request wasn't ignored by a
recipient's client.

You're right that in case of attention support it's an overkill. So,
I'd remove several MUSTs from the XEP. Namely, I don't feel that
disco#info querying is necessary before alerting and I don't think
that the advertising must be switched off when it's disabled. (There
are too many MUSTs in the XEP. I'd remove all of them, actually.)
