I agree with you that being able to implement a new feature with a
server-agnostic codebase is a cool feature.
However, XEP-0114 does not cover the ability to have an external process
add support for a new XEP. That is certainly a feature that many modern
XMPP servers support, but AFAIK that protocol has never been documented in
a XEP - certainly not this one.
Further, there's absolutely valid reasons why an author may not want to
support it (eg, security).
