Well, technically you could do either, although I'd go for the former
as it's how Jabber was intended to be used. You can define an arbitrary
namespace and carry your XML in that.

(Ref below - must've missed/forgotten this one: Jan Peter - I haven't
used Net::Jabber for a while, so can't remember off the top of my head;
but how about using a 'wrapper' type X extension to hold whatever 
RDF you want (i.e. two layers)?
