Nice modernization. :)

There's no explanation about how to use <message>.  It looks like the example 
usage was removed.

"If enabled by the application that uses IBB, the parties MAY negotiate 
multiple SessionIDs for the same bytestream, however such methods are out of 
scope for this specification."  Would these really be multiple sessionIDs for 
the same bytestream, or simply multiple bytestreams?  I get that this text is 
to allow/warn for XEP-261, but I'm not sure if it is right or needed.

Also, some typos:
  "Because IBB provides a generic bytestream, so its usage is open-ended."
  "(which SHOULD math the NMTOKEN datatype)"
