Unfortunately, no. I wouldn't like everyone in my roster to be able to
shake my client window. Instead I would like to implement a sort of
white list for this. And it's hard to represent in XEP-0115 hash that
somone is allowed to ask an attention query and others aren't.

IQ is perfectly compatible with unsupported clients. They definitely
reply with an error (if the client isn't an outdated Psi, which was
known to swallow unsupported IQ stanzas).

I think that without a feedback this XEP is only a toy, not more. (But
since Jabber is good only as a toy anyway then it shouldn't matter
much :)
