I don't think it's beneficial to start JSON vs. XMPP discussion here. If 
we want to hand logs to JSON-based systems, this doesn't mean we should 
use JSON as-is. For example, we can still use JSON-ish XML instead. In 
the case, if we use complex namespace and XML-ish versioning, XML-JSON 
binding may become broken.

What I would like to clarify is use cases.

Then, I guess netconf/netmod(YANG) and SNMP will be a first choices. 
FYI, as IoT-related disucussion there are proposal on CoAP-based 
management interface (not adopted by IETF yet).
