I still have the requirment that i need to 'annote' (or 'reference' if you
will) data like URLs in the body tag with information like content-type,
content-lenght and so on.

If you don't want this in the references XEP I'm fine with this and I'm
gonna create my own. However I believe this would mix quit well especially
since twitter does the same thing.

Having arbitrary (XML) attributes is probably a problem schema wise. So a
slightly modified version of my earlier proposal would be to have a data
form child of the reference element and a (growing) list of well known

Kev: Is this something you'd be willing to include in your XEP? If you like
I'd even add it myself and create a PR. If not can I get a 'No' so I can
create my own XEP to fullfill this need?
