[Standards] Feedback to Compliance Suites 2020

Hi list,

Here’s my promised feedback to the CS 2020, specifically to the selection of 
XEPs and their "levels".

- Should we really require both BOSH and WebSockets for the Web Suite for 
clients? Maybe it makes more sense to require it both for Servers, but only 
one of them for clients, possibly even phasing out BOSH. (Disclaimer: I’m not 
a Web person).

- The XEP-0198 entries (Stanza Acknowledgement, Stream Resumption) can be 
collapsed to a single entry in all cases, since both entries have the same 

- I’d like to add XEP-0392 to Core IM Client, with an exception for clients on 
monochrome displays.

- I suggest to remove the Jabber Component Protocol from Core Server.

- There is not a single file transfer XEP in there. We should add one or more 

  - HTTP File Upload (XEP-0363)
  - Jingle File Transfer (XEP-0234)

  I’m not sure how to group them in levels though. I tend towards putting 
XEP-0363 to Core Client+Server (since it’s as of today the only way to 
sensibly share a file in a MUC) and XEP-0234 to Advanced Client.

And finally, there’s a typo in §3: "fot developers" -> "for developers".

kind regards,
