Your assumption is that XMPP is XML. I think it has been said in
multiple discussions on this list and in the jdev chat room that that
assumption is not correct :-)

It's said that XMPP is just 'an application' or 'a subset' of XML.  And
I heard from some people that XMPP's "XML" was even simplified to allow
writing of own "more efficient" ""XML""(XMPP) parsers.

I very much agree with that observation :-)
