So is this a vote to NOT split out Nicks?

You could probably move channels into a separate XEP too, and messages, and
nodes, and maybe a few other things.

I think if you really try, you could probably get MIX up to at least 24
separate XEPs - that would be pretty cool.


There are features that are essential, and then there are features that are
sensible which could be moved into separate XEPs because they're not
essential, but in practice they're necessary anyway.


Don't get carried away with splitting off every little thing - it doesn't
help anyone to have to rummage through a dozen XEPs just to check whether
they need/want listed features.




It's probably a rare case that a user will want to set a channel nick
different from their 'normal' one.


Participants also in a user's roster will already have an assigned nick, but
those not in the roster will not; so either: they stay 'bare' (just use
JID), or the channel provides nicks along with JIDs, or there's a ridiculous
barrage of requests to find out everyone's nicks when the channel could have
provided the same information in a single response.
