           Summary: Move miscellaneous information from profiles to CMs
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: simon.mcvittie at collabora.co.uk

The move of "profiles" from mandatory to optional in Mission Control 5 leaves
us with nowhere to put various misc information about the protocols, which
should really have been in the CM in the first place.

Things to consider:

* static CM protocol capabilities (bug #17312)
* icon (or define a way to construct an icon name, e.g. im-jabber-gabble
falling back to im-jabber)
* protocol name in at least the C locale, with a note saying that UIs SHOULD
pass it through gettext (in their own domain) before displaying it (we sort of
have this from GetProtocol, e.g. jabber, although the capitalization is wrong)
* vCard field represented by this CM (e.g. X-JABBER)
* URI schemes supported by this CM? (e.g. xmpp: - but for that to work, we need
a way to turn a URI into a handle)
