[Standards] Proposed XMPP Extension: Explicit Message Encryption

Having the name be an attribute doesn't seem very friendly to me. What
if I want it in a different language or locale? How do RTL languages
work? Even if we assume everything is always English, what if my text
doesn't work well with all names "an [OTR] encrypted message" works
fine, but "an [PGP] encrypted message" does not where the bracketed
word is substituted.

I'd leave off the name attribute entirely; it's not necessary.
