I agree with everything you said, but I'm especially in favour of fixing
this one. Part of the goal of these things is to help summarize XMPP
compliance of a piece of software to people who aren't intimate with XMPP.
There is no planet on which describing a piece of software as "Core Core"
makes sense.

I'd be in favour of either switching to "Basic"/"Advanced" (I think "Basic"
was frowned upon originally, which is why it wasn't used), or to numbered
levels as you propose.
