Maybe silly question but why do you need webserver in between?

I mean usually mobile device sends HTTP request through wapserver
to webserver indeed. But this time you want to communicate with XMPP
server so the scenario should be:

Mobile device sends request through wapserver to XMPP server.
If you don't want to use persistent connection like pure XMPP connection
you should probably use server with XEP-0124 implementation directly.

So there would be no need for webserver.

You mobile device would send HTTP request (containing xmpp data)
through wapserver to XMPP server with XEP-0124.
