My initial reaction to this XEP is that it has considerable overlap with 
XEP-0198 (Stanza Acknowledgements).  In particular, stream-level pings are 
already covered in XEP-0198.

XMPP Ping also proposes an end-to-end ping mechanism.  This may not be a bad 
idea, but I see it as serving a completely different purpose than 
stream-level pings.  So, my initial suggestion would be to reduce XMPP Ping 
to only cover e2e pings.
