When I read XEP-0184, I thought about a few situations which are not
explicitly addressed in the XEP, so I did draw my own conclusions. It might be
desired to add (some of) these to the XEP explicitly. I leave that for someone
else to decide. I just list them here so anyone can think about them:
1. It is not strange to receive multiple receipts for a single message,
because a user might have his messages delivered to all clients instead of a
single one (depending on which kinds of delivery the server supports).
2. Regarding the recommendations when not to request receipts, I would say it
is not recommended to request a receipt for any message carrying a receipt.
(This can become problematic if not designed carefully.)
3. Is there any recommendation regarding message archiving? If the receipt
request is in the archive, a receipt might be send every time the user browses
the archive. If a receipt request is removed before archiving, it is possible
that a receipt is never send (e.g. in an IMAP like system, messages are
archived by the server to be received by a client from the archive).
