I'm sure I've explained this in the past, but here goes again. It's not a 
fixed array of 8 bytes, the first word is a length (in this case 6) followed 
by variable data (in this example another 6 bytes). In my ICQ client (which 
is v7) this data has always been ignored (like it's a placeholder for future 
extensions to the protocol). Obviously a v8 client may make more use of it.
