I think this is a good idea.

First of all, there is a typo in there 'RECOMMENDE' instead of

Further, we had this before in the extended presence XEPs, except we
used 'current' instead. I really dislike all caps.

No need to refer to 'NodeID is an XML namespace'. Just stating that if a
particular node is intended to have at most one item, it SHOULD use
'current' (or whatever), is enough.
