I think that works very well, actually.
1. Require (MUST) that any compliant xmpp entity must accept any
2. Note (non-normative) that for historical reasons some entities may
only accept "stream",
Predicted result: almost every implementation will send only "stream"
but hopefully correctly accept any prefix.
