Super. Are details available regarding the exact protocol used? Can
people build "bundles" of custom emoticons to offer for general use?

What is required is for the XMPP Extensions Editor (c'est moi) to issue
a Last Call and for the XMPP Council to vote on advancing it to Draft.
We've been planning to do that soon because some anti-spam measures
we're working on (XEP-0158) need to include images in data forms
(XEP-0221) so that we can send CAPTCHAs and other such data over the wire.

So expect a Last Call real soon now. You can help by commenting on the
three specs referenced above. :)
