Again, why is that needed? You don't need that to match messages sent
from your own client because you obviously generate proper UUIDs if you
care about that.

You don't need that to match incoming messages from your other client
because those are identified by the MAM archive ID.

So what's the use case? Besides, if it is only about knowing whether a
client sends unique ids, that could be implemented as a disco#info
feature.
