I agree with Stephen.
Compression is a nice to have feature with significant value, but there 
is no functionality addition - dont really think it must be part of 
basic or even intermediate im suite for that matter.
Also, it adds functionality which is mirror'ed to an extent by simply 
supporting tls compression.
