I think:
"The wrapping message SHOULD maintain the same 'type', 'from', and
'id' attribute values (if any), while the 'to' attribute SHOULD be the
full JID of the resource receiving the copy."

isn't right. The encapsulated message already has these data available
- the encapsulating message should have attributes that reflect who is
really sending/receiving the stanza (i.e. to=the client receiving the
carbon, from=the server or the bare JID, unique id).
