I think Diana is saying that the model of COIN is essentially that of  
SIP, and doesn't conform well to the federation and deployment model  
of XMPP, which is much more structured and well-defined.

I have no comment on whether this is the case or not as regards COIN,  
but I would note that as a general rule, trying to mix models can  
lead to complex behaviour which is not always desirable.
