OK, probably it does. But it's still unclear how this will interact
with thumbnails. As I understand several files will be rejected at the
first step (only thumbnails are allowed), then, if a receiver desires,
the process should be repeated or what?

Deferred and supports bob only.

But why should we write tons of XEPs which leads to overengineering
when we could just improve HTTP Upload proto-XEP?
