[Standards] Proposed XMPP Extension: Last Message Correction

Because it's more general. "Last" implies that it's not possible to
modify prior messages, which is not explicitly prohibited by the
specification, nor should it be. For that reason, "last" is not as
clear as "previous", and is perhaps even confusing.
