>&RQ uses type-2 when other clients uses version 7+ of protocol, but as

Yes, I believe that's the one. My ICQ client (which is version 7) only has 
two capabilities listed: that one and 
{09461344-4c7f-11d1-8222-444553540000}. I was looking at the source for gaim 
a couple of days ago (they actually have a quite a good OSCAR implementation 
from what I've seen), and they listed the first GUID as CAPS_ICQSERVERRELAY 
and the second one as CAPS_ICQ. I know they're both used in messages, so my 
theory was that CAPS_ICQSERVERRELAY was used with messages sent through the 
server, and CAPS_ICQ is for direct-connection messages. I'm not positive 
about that though.
