I think this abuse reporting mechanism would be used by a server to
report abuse to a peer (via some kind of automated rate-limiting or
traffic-checking), not by a recipient. Now, errors could occur in that
process ("oops sorry, we thought you were being abusive but it turns out
you weren't, really"). I suppose that might be reported the next time
the offending entity sends a packet over the s2s connection (I don't see
a strong reason to create a new IQ protocol for this).

I don't understand that sentence.
