Encrypted sessions should be obsoleted, too.

We could look at the usage in pubsub and see if it's really needed. But
I seem to recall a dependency in XEP-0045 too.

The XEP-0158 reference was there for backward-compatibility and could be
removed if we want to modernize CAPTCHA forms.

This is a "leaf" spec so I wouldn't expect any dependencies.

See above on esessions.

This is widely implemented AFAIK.

Safe to obsolete.

Hmm, that's a helpful feature (see §7.1.2.4) if we want to still support
subscription IDs.

Another leaf spec.
