I was considering implementing it also as a fun experiment.

Too chatty? It looks less chatty than normal XMPP (no presence, less stream negotiation), where's the issue?
And maybe the presence issue was only an implementation error?

If it was a fun experiment, why is XEP-0174 in status Final instead of Experimental then?
