Indeed suspend is not difficult, it's just one more "command" to be
added to stanza acknowledgments (or an attribute to the existing <r/>
or <a/>), simply telling the server to suspend the connection (timings
can be negotiated at session level, such as we already do in BOSH with
a careful setting of "wait" and "inactivity" attributes).
Hush is the one that is difficult, since it is a sort of dynamic
privacy list in which we set which messages can be considered
important and at with which importance. Hush moreover has a meaning
both when connected (e.g. I'd like to delay some messages for
optimizing compression) and when disconnected (which messages can
start a new connection?), and for this reason I think it fits a
completely different XEP and we can wait for it...
