That would be the text that doesn't change materially, right?

How then do you handle something like XMPP chat, which is clearly
unicast, and in which both the "to" and the "from" differ between the
sent message and the received message?  This re-writing is exactly the
same for type="chat" (unicast) and type="groupchat" (multicast).
