Is there any update on this ? Actually the situation is not really good today: 
some client encode XML in OTR, other don't, there is no way to advertise OTR 
support with discovery and there is an OTR specific advertisement way (with 
whitespace-tagged messages). OTR need to work with non XMPP gateways. It would 
be really good to standardize all that...
