Alright, then, I stand corrected; I didn't remember that one, but as  
you said 'years ago' I'll correct my statement to 'not one single  
person /recently/.'

As for your idea, if you believe in it, then XEP it.  Seriously.   
That's the first step to take in getting it approved and adopted.

The reason we have entity capabilities is that it got written up as a  
XEP, pushed forward, discussed by everyone on standards, moved to a  
voting stage when no alternative XEP was presented, and got  
accepted.  It's not a conspiracy, it's not shutting out alternatives,  
it's just that no one seems interested in /writing up/ any  
alternative they propose as an actual formal XEP.

Got an idea?  Write a XEP, and a reference implementation.  Present  
both! :)
