I see the categories as follows:

1. Gateways provide connections to other services/networks so that XMPP
entities can communicate in certain ways with non-XMPP entities.

2. Proxies are server-side or middle-side helpers that enable you to
communicate in certains ways with other XMPP entities.

Naturally, something could be both a proxy and a gateway (identities are
not mutually exclusive).
