My problem with XEP-0226 is that it embarks on an endless task of
documenting every message-related extension out there. An example
problem this causes would be interop issues with undocumented private
extensions.

Message hints provide a basic palette that allows anyone to colour any
message any way they like. They can be used by both implementations
and other extensions, without every implementation having to update
their profile classification rules when a new XEP is published.
