IMHO we don't need any framework. Leave XHTML-IM JEP as it is. It is
a good protocol. Any other XHTML JEP would be just other protocol, which
can be mostly described by cut&paste from XHTML-IM JEP. Another JEP
describing how to make XHTML JEPs and containin the common part whould
be IMHO an overkill and may be problematic -- when the "common part"
needs changes for a new JEP or new XHTML version than it may break some
old JEPs or a new "framework" JEP would be required. 

Now, when XHTML-IM is mostly self-contained it is ready to implement and
that is the only thing we want now.
