An other factor to consider is how most people actually implement a
protocol. Guess what, it's not by reading the RFCs and XEPs in great
detail ;-) It's by protocol examples either from tcpdumps or the
specification itself and then testing against a common server or
client until it "works". So, it's very common for someone to miss the
fact some data should be treated as opaque. The best specifications
define how the data should be interpreted.
