What was agreed at the summit (I’m hoping the minutes for that present themselves soon!) was that carbons would be tied in to MAM. So that if your server supports MAM, you’d get Carbons for whatever was going to be stored in the archive - this could be based on the payloads of the message, and might or might not include type=groupchat, depending on whether those go into MAM. So it’s not quite as simple (if we still want to do what was discussed at the Summit) as just saying ‘type=chat and type=normal’.
