> If it's a well-defined FORM_TYPE, a client could do something fancy for the well-defined fields (e.g. {urn:xmpp:acct-mgmt:0:dataforms:update}newpass gets a special strength meter nearby), and an "advanced" button/tab/overlay/etc for the non-standard things.

Right, but I always found this to be a cop-out. Either you want ad-hoc
protocols, and you don't need FORM_TYPES, or you want the client to
know about a command, and then you need a real protocol.
