[JDEV] XML parser

If jabber is suppose to be an XML app, why doesn't it make use
of some of the available XMP parsers (James Clark's 'expat'
comes to mind... (http://www.jclark.com/xml/expat.html))?

As I see it now, the protocol is not XML since it doesn't conform
to the XML standard. I intend to write a Java client (and ofcourse
use one of the existing Java XML-parsers). This however is rather
troublesome since jabber doesn't support true XML.

Will the protocol support true XML?
