How do clients know which version of carbons got enabled?

I could live with Bind2 being hardcoded to MAM and Carbons. But is there
any particular reason why the <bind/> step should not be a flexible
atomic mechanism for resource binding and performing arbitrary actions?

Something like

<bind xmlns='urn:xmpp:bind2:0'>
  <action type="urn:xmpp:mam:1"/>
  <action type="urn:xmpp:carbons:2/>
  <action type="foo:bar"/>

and <bound/> returns the result of the action(s) (if any). Or an
meaningful error is returned, if one or more actions could not be
performed. That would also ensure that the versions requested by the
client got enabled.

+1 for removing client suggested resource parts.

Nit: Example 3 contains a comma
