The text already says that the receipt isn't sent until the message is
presented to the user, which seems to be exactly the behaviour
discussed - that the message was in the window the user had selected
at the time. So the XEP already covers this.

What it doesn't cover is acking messages as soon as the client has
received them and before they're presented to the user -  we have 198
to do exactly that.
