The OOB approach does not work in cases, where XMPP is the only window
to the world - either as a BOSH, SSL tunnel to a server listening on 443
(https) port, firewall rule allowing traffic to 5222 port...
I know, this usage is very common, and XMPP is known to be "the way" to
get a running IM in networks, where Internet == HTTP.
And the decision what is to large for the XMPP server to put through
should be a deployment decision - some servers administrators do not
like 10kB transfers and some are just fine with 100MB transfers.
