Totally agreed. As a note, I think the list of deprecated XEPs should be
revised and a transition mechanism should be developed. The specs are:
1) Avatars: XEP-0084 vs XEP-0153
2) Time: XEP-0090 vs XEP-0202. Yes, there are still abandoned quite
popular clients with no support of XEP-0202.
3) Filetransfer. Tons of specs. The transition might be HTTP
Upload + jabber:x:oob, until Jingle specs are finalized.
4) MUC. Inventing MUC2 will result in the similar problems. The
transition will be painful due to MUC complexity.
