The think I don't like about the JEP is:

   A subset of XHTML is used to provide alternative formatting for a text message. This pattern
   is familiar from email, wherein HTML mail supplements but does not supersede the text-only
   version of the message. In Jabber, all of the textual content must always be represented as
   best as possible in the normal body of the <message/>, for use by clients that do not support
   XHTML formatting or for capturing the meaning (as opposed to formatting) of the message
   content.

Why should the text been send twice if both sender and recipient fully support XHTML IM?

Greets,
        Jacek
