This is my preference as well, though I seemed to recall that Kevin was
going to keep it as is, for editing just the last message.   Regardless,
the XEP-0301 protocol will be compatible with either method.

As for my XEP-0301 updates, keep tuned.  Workload and certain priorities
has increased as of late, but I will be catching up.   I know that the U.S.
access board has inquired asking about when it'll be ready.
