as mentioned before, I disagree with that, as in my eyes, 0392 is
conceptually not different from Avatars in any way, except that it
doesn't add wire protocol.

With my XEP author hat on, I would like to challenge Counil on inclusion
of that specific XEP.

Added a note.

I very much dislike it myself, but as of right now nobody stepped up to
write down this tribal knowledge, so the remark in CS-2020 is the only
formal mention so far. If somebody steps up to make an Informational
XEP, we surely can add a note inside CS-2020.

I would love to see that, but it would require specific input from the
respective sub-community. If I'm provided with a table of XEPs similar
to the other Categories, and if there is community consensus about that
table, I'll be glad to integrate.

> On a positive note, I like the idea of §1.1 "Changes since 2019".

I've now filled it in, so that people can better gauge the upcoming Last
