I think a value of 0 might have other uses and we should use -1 instead. But 
that’s bikeshed.

I think this makes a lot of sense. Can you provide a PR so that we can discuss 
the concrete proposal in the next meeting?

I think this would require a disco#info feature though, for clients to rely 

(On a related note: we (Editor and iteam) are still in progress of recovering 
the ability to work with the Registry. So I hope we can glance over the issue 
that we don’t want to continuously update XEP-00{45,60} with new features we 
need and instead make proper use of the registries for that one last time.)

kind regards,
