Yes that would be nice.

I've actually spent the most of the last four days rewriting how
I marshal XMPP messages into XML because of the confusion in how namespaces
are handled - not just in BOSH but in general.

In my case the server was accepting the stanzas fine, it was the flash
client that refused to handle them correctly because it was expecting them
exactly as the various XEP's show.

Perhaps we should have an XEP to consolidate best practices on how to handle
XML rather than having bits like this dotted across the various XEP's?
