Well, not really. Clients usually generate IDs based on some simple
algorithm, and don't take into account IDs from incoming messages. For
example, 2 clients with a simple incrementing counter would give this:

C1->C2: (id=1) <body>hi there</body>
C2->C1: (id=1) <body>hello</body><request-receipt/>
C1->C2: (id=1) <request-received/>

C1 sent two normal messages with id=1: the first one generated from
the auto-incrementing number algorithm, the second one mirroring the
message from the incoming message.

I agree.
