Agreed, hence the thread.

I'm split on the issue of Carbons vs. MAM; as I said, I like the fact
that carbons has a fairly small footprint, on the other hand, I like
the idea of not having overlap between XEPs which just leads to client
incompatibilities and end user confusion, and I suspect MAM will
eventually be able to replace Carbons either way.

Overall I'm leaning towards the "update Carbons to play nicely" line.
Would someone who was at the Summit this year care to comment on what
needs to happen to make that a reality?
