XEP-0234 is an Experimental XEP, and as such was likely to get some
breaking changes before its promotion to the next state.  To quote
XEP-0001, §9.1, “Note: An Experimental specification is a work in
progress and may undergo significant modification before advancing to a
status of Draft.”

I do welcome that change, as it makes the XEP a lot simpler to
implement fully, and putting the removed features in some other XEP
doesn’t remove any usability from the clients which do implement it.
