Great, we tired you out! ;-)

It's not what I want, it's what makes the most sense -- or at least what
reflects the consensus of the list. ;-)

If it's a chat message then it won't be a strange headline message. If
the message is empty except for the attention request then a client must
ignore the message if it doesn't understand the attention namespace, so
that won't result in strange empty messages. And several people on the
list don't think that the attention request is something that we need to
ack. But if others think this needs to be an IQ then I'm open to argument.
