Kurt et cetra, would this be satisfactory in the short term?

It would at least mean XMPP RTT would now have a basic mechanism of
discovering whether the other end supports RTT, and being able to restrain
from sending RTT if the other end does not support RTT. This would not be
the complete session negotiation algorithm, but would allay the cheif
concern of Kurt.
