It feels to me like it would either be recommended in "XMPP Basic Server 
2008" or required in "XMPP Intermediate Server 2008".

And naturally if we're going to require support for XEP-0138, we also 
need to specify which compression methods from the registry will be 
mandatory-to-implement. IMHO zlib is a good baseline since it is a 
mature technology. The "Efficient XML" spec still needs to be published 
(I don't see it at the W3C site yet) and then implemented, so it might 
be appropriate for certification in 2009 or 2010.

http://www.w3.org/XML/EXI/ may be more appropriate.

Well there's a non-sequitur. :)
