> XEP-0279 (Server IP Check) has been released.

This protocol is hard to implement in servers with strong separation of
client connection handling and client session handling (jabberd14,
jabberd2, Tigase AFAIK).

In these architectures the entity responsible for handling IQ requests
knows only XMPP and is oblivious of the transport layer.
The entity responsible for XMPP to TCP binding is separate, knows only
XMPP-Core and nothing about XMPP-IM.

The clean separation of RFC 3920 and RFC 3921 allows this.
XEP-0279 breaks this and causes tight coupling of these layers.
