We should keep this in perspective: This is XMPP RTT, not in-band
bytestreams (i.e. XEP-0096 file transfer). It is low bandwidth the vast
majority of the time, and contributes no additional data when nobody is

That said, I agree -- it is going to be added to the spec in due time, well
before XMPP RTT clients become popular.
