[Standards] Unread syncing

in a single chat conversation, it makes no sense to query unread messages.

you could just query the last 10 MAM Messages, if no readmarker comes 
with it, query another 10. such a implementation of MAM would be very 
weird to me, but you could do it and get only unread messages with it. 
So this already works without problem with the MAM and 0333 XEP.
And in single chat its not possible to "miss" a message in between, 
which you would want to query.

And this is not a theory, XEP-0333 are stored by the server if the 
client wishes that, and working implementations of MAM and 0333 together 
you can witness for example in Conversations.

All i see in this proposal is adding complexity to the whole process in 
introducing another thing the server has to support.

best wishes
