The XSF has not traditionally done a wonderful job of archiving previous
versions. I'm concerned that we'd lose track of the SIACS version. Why
wouldn't we continue development of the Olm versions under a new XEP
number, as for instance we've done with XEP-0176 and XEP-0371 or
XEP-0115 and XEP-0390?
