I did a quick read, and I like what I saw so far. I need to read it  
again though.

One thing  would like to see in the implementation notes is a  
recomendation for server authors to allow for forwarding of this  
reports to a JID or set of JIDs

This would allow for ad-hoc aggregation of abuse reports by a third  
party to cross reference them.

The first time I saw example 1 above, I though "hmms.. we might need  
a reason here...".

So if we add a <reason> to the <abuse> stanza, we could merge 161  
with this.

Changed the destination address.
