Generally positive developer testimonials on XEP-0301:

(Talky) "There are of course more little implementation [UX] details and
potential Unicode issues that the XEP-0301 spec covers, but the fundamental
model is *remarkably simple and fun to implement*."

(Babbler) "XMPP Real-time Text is definitively *one of the most fun XMPP
extension out there*, from user's point of view as well as *from a
developer's point of view*! Recently I've added support for it in the
upcoming version 0.6.0 and I thought I'd make a short video which
demonstrates this cool new feature in action!"

Another project, jabber.el supports it as well (written in Emacs Lisp!):

We have privately received some minor non-compatibility-related errata from
some of the developers of the aboveformentioned libraries:
-- XML namespace correction (does not affect existing implementations)
-- Minor implementation-related ambiguities (i.e. may need a little bit of
additional text in implementation notes); no protocol change
I'll let author(s) chime in directly (calling out, specifically, Christian
Schudt -- babbler author)
