A couple of comments.

- Should there be a "name" attribute, so that if a client wants to do  
something generic with these, there's something to show?  The client  
specifies an xml:lang in their request, so the server can choose the  
right language for the response.

- If you make these requests to a remote server, for whatever reason,  
you SHOULD send a directed presence to that server first.  If the  
receiving server does not have presence information for a given  
requester session, it MUST NOT push updates to that requester session.

If the pushes turn out to work ok in real life, I think we should  
think about adding them to disco...
