Ok, I give up, XMPP may stay how is.
The future will show what happens and if people are willing or trying to
use silly XML-parsers everywhere.
No problem for me, I have an implementation since some years, I just
don't think the need to fiddle with streaming XML is what encourages
other people to use it. It's a pain and I would not suggest trying to
use it, if it can be avoided. There are much easier ways to send some
messages around (to come back to M2M, the topic I responded first too).
It might be easy to send messages with XMPP (as ethersex proves, at
least until the manifesto gets in action), but implementing the stuff to
receive stuff correctly wastes a lot of totally unnecessary development
time, just because that silly need for an XML-parser.
It isn't meant hostile, please don't tread it as offensive. It's just
how I do think about it.
