Maybe you're right, I was thinking of all of the commands you listed
as different things, each with their own semantics and request/reply
payloads, but they are all things that could be done generally in the
same way; it's effectively a general "challenge" (form, POW, etc.)
delivery feature.

I'll think about this more, but right now I think it's just scope
creep and not something I want to work on. If such a feature existed
already, I'd probably use it, but I'm not sure if I want to take the
diversion to write this XEP and then re-frame IBR in terms of it. I'll
think about it though; thanks for the suggestion!

Feel free to go work on 0050 if you think it needs work; I am working
on IBR right now though, and am not interested in changing priorities.
