My intention was simply to have the most potential code benefit from the
patch, as opposed to localizing a fix in a client of the library.  The
real benefit to the patch is that it will prevent users from assuming
(rationally, even though incorrectly) that there is a problem with
_their_ client, since other clients happen to work.

I would love to just see the right thing get fixed here; that would of
course be the ideal solution.  However, most users wouldn't be able to
fix this issue, and they'd give up and go back to what they know---that
which they *perceive* to be functional.  Of course, if it's fixed in
just the composer, that gets around the immediate issue, but what
happens if some other piece of code uses EDS to build a message to be
sent to a buggy server?  Am I missing something?
