Using CSI like this is an abuse of the spec, in my opinion. It was not
designed as a locking / synchronization mechanism, and a new XEP
should be written for this if it's something you need (actually, I
have an XEP that does effectively just this that I've got a green
light on and am ready to submit as soon as I hear back from the
lawyers at work; will advise).
