So, what you're suggesting is opening second connection to the 5222
port, and negotiating second, binary stream?

Well... I like the idea.
But this, would in reality create second, XMPP-Core/servers based, but
effectively unrelated to XMPP-IM, network for binary packet routing.
This network could be used to ie. Ethernet over XMPP with JIDs in place
of MAC or any other wild idea. :-)
