rfc3920bis-03 says:  Unbind Not Supported
If the server does not understand the <unbind/> element, it MUST return
a stanza error, which SHOULD be <bad-request/>.

This is not backwards compatible.
Pre-bis servers would reply with <feature-not-implemented/> error rater
than <bad-request/>. This <unbind/> <iq/> is not a bad request for them,
but just another unimplemented feature.
