Right. As I said, this is the key for me. The protoXEP is defining a
method for reliable delivery that is necessarily different from
XEP-0184 and XEP-0198. It works on top of, and does not modify, XMPP's
standard routing.

These things were not clear to me on reading. I wonder if, for next
week, you could add some clarification along these points? I think a
new reliability XEP, when we already have multiple, really needs to
justify its existence.

Likewise explaining that it's not modifying current XMPP routing would
clarify the scope of the protocol.
