> The SHOULD NOT on ‘x:’ types seems unnecessarily heavy, especially as fallback is specified in 4.1. The ‘shall’ specify basic seems inconsistent with saying that it’s option. Only ‘should’ match the data type for basic seems odd, especially as it’s almost immediately followed with a must.

> The various points that extensions are prohibited (must be empty) seems inconsistent with the usual ‘extend anywhere’ XMPPishness.
