good work on this, Sam!

I've created a PR at https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/411 :

| This PR contains three diffs to XEP-0387, in increasing order of
| controversy:
| - a minor typo fix
| - Addition of XEP-0368: SRV records for XMPP over TLS as an Advanced Core feature
| - Removal of 'User Avatars' from IM-Core, making it IM-Advanced only.
| Please feel free to apply any subset of these. I think that (3) is the
| most controversial one and needs the strongest rationale, so here it is:
| - avatars require a graphical display to make sense (this is slightly
|   mitigated by footnote 20)
| - avatars consume network bandwidth
| - avatars are more of a cosmetic element than a functional one (not having
|   them will not cause your messages to get lost in transmission)
| - there are interop problems with file formats (some clients insist on
|   using webp :-P )
| - there are interop problems with MUC
| I'd rather see 0198 and XEP-0184: Message Delivery Receipts as core
| features, before addressing avatars.

Kind regards,
