"2. Stream Feature

After negotiating use of TLS and authenticating via SASL, the receiving
entity returns a new stream header [...]"

This is a bit unclear to me.
Does it mean that XEP-0198 requires using TLS encryption and
What if the client does not want (or cannot due to resource constraints)
to use TLS encryption?
What about S2S links? These are mostly not SASL authenticated.
