Making an http interface layer that transforms the api requests into
jabber messages would not be difficult. However I think the place to
start is for XMPP to look at adopting some type of http authorization
workflow (see OAuth, FlickrAuth, Etc.) This would provide a secure way
of authorizing web applications to be used as clients for users.

This weekend I put some good time into the use of xmpp as a layer to
support a social network (using the xmpp roster as the database to
storing trust relationships). And this would be greatly simplified
with an authorization scheme.
