In the XMPP Council meeting yesterday, we discussed the desirability of
adding some implementation notes to XEP-0199 (XMPP Ping) before
advancing it from Draft to Final. As far as I can see, the primary note
that we need to add is something like this:

"Some XMPP clients do not respond to IQ stanzas containing unsupported
payloads. Although this is in violation of XMPP Core, this behavior can
result in disconnection of clients that are in fact actively connected
to the server."

Dave Cridland and Yann Leboulanger mentioned the possibility of adding
some text about recommended timeout values, but in my opinion such
values would need to be adjusted based on network conditions, so I don't
think it would be straightforward to make universal recommendations.

Do we need to cover any other topics in the implementation notes?
