What I really don't like in this XEP is that it contradicts the idea of 
"keep clients simple". I think we can do the same using server-side 
redirects (we have such error type already defined in the core RFC). In 
that case a client just need to set a redirect and his/her contacts 
should process presence redirects correctly. Also, redirects can be used 
for temporary migration and not only for account removal.
