Yes, and it's called "The Point".

ESessions has one crypto implementation and one client implementation.

C2C TLS has numerous carefully audited crypto implementations, and  
one (or two?) test client implementations. Now, arguably, it might  
well have more - I'm not sure how many of the existing XEP-0174  
clients will simply use TLS if offered, which would count in at least  
some respects.

Therefore, in many respects ESessions is already lagging behind C2C  
TLS without anyone actually having done any coding specifically  
toward it.
