There is a point I haven't said so far, it is that I plan to propose (probably 
after Fosdem) an other protoXEP to indicate to server how to handle offline 

Right now if I have a mention and I'm online, it's alright I can display it to 
the user. If I'm offline, only the server know that I have a notification.
So I want to be able to tell to the server « when I'm offline and I have this 
kind of notification, send me an email [or something else], when I'm online, 
I'll handle it myself thanks »

The reason I want to make a generic option server side, is that I want to 
handle PubSub notifications in addition to mentions: e.g. I want to be able to 
say to my server « I want an email when somebody reply to a comment and I'm 
not online, but I don't want notification if somebody mention me ». Also the 
server can know user email address thanks to vcard. So it make more sense for 
me to handle offline notification on the server rather than on components.
