We have two really long specs: XEP-0045 and XEP-0060.

In the XMPP Council meeting just now, we talked about some ways to
shorten these documents.

The rough consensus seemed to be that for XEP-0045 we could probably
move the moderator/admin/owner use cases to a separate spec. A quick
visual comparison of the following two URLs indicates that we'd cut
about 40% (or more) of XEP-0045 by doing that:

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#moderator

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#statuscodes

Notice also the length of these sections:

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#registrar-formtype
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#schemas-admin
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#schemas-owner

I'd be willing to work on this, but I want to make sure that people
think there's value in doing so.

Ralph Meijer might post separately about XEP-0060.
