Makes sense, considering that AOL is still in the
process of merging AIM and ICQ, and not too long ago
released a new AIM version that supported ICQ contacts
and messages, thus would need a new capability to let
the servers know about that feature.

Makes sense.  Why would other clients need to know
about that particular capability?  It doesn't
influence connections with other clients on a P2P
level, it only effects the server itself.
