This does make some sense. In Prosody a stanza is most of the time
detached from its parent namespace, and in fact our MAM plugin already
unconditionally sets jabber:client. I can't think of a case where you
would need it to be jabber:server, even for the use-cases Peter
brought up.

I know top of my list for XMPP 2.0 (1.1??) would be a single namespace
for all stream types :)
