An update to the 'arbitrary attributes' feature request. Even more
important than the before mentioned content-type, content-length and so
forth are probably description and a thumbnail. Information which can be
extracted for example by the means of open graph [1] meta tags from a lot
of websites.

This would allow for a proper link preview like slack, skype and so forth
are doing.

Kev: When questioning this. Is your concern that you don't want the
attributes to be completely arbitrary? Do you want them to be well-defined?
(Having a set list of like content-type, description, thumbnail,
content-length and so forth?) Or would you rather not have attributes like
this in this XEP at all?

Cheers
Daniel
