I still think that 0280 should not be advanced until we figure out the
0045-interop. It also seems that some implementations ignore the
type="chat" requirement and also forward "normal" messages.

Relaxing the 0280 specification, as Kev promised to write up tomorrow,
is one important building block for fixing the 0045 interop.  IMO, the
second building block will be to make more specific recommendations to
implementors of 0280+0045.

The proposals listed in the wiki [1] all have their drawbacks, but so
far nothing better has emerged from the discussion.
