Since version 4.12, XEP supports custom meta-fields.
These custom info fields may contain white space characters.
That's why XEP writes all meta-fields as String (i.e. in braces).

Yes, it's a bug in XEP.

XEP should write predefined fields as Name (i.e. with a slash), and only
custom fields as String.

I will fix the bug in this way.
