good, so I haven't say too much stupidities then. And yes I really
think some good practice XEP could be helpful. Without it I fear
implementers will continue not to take into account the importance of
acting according entities' capacities.
When you say "we", who is it? Because if it is me, I will write it but
I have never done any. So yes, your help and advices are more than
helpful. :-)
