I think the core of the XEP should not rely on ad-hoc services: the
whole protocol should re-use existing pubsub spec. For relaying
messages this would be enough. Other stuff like presence management,
jid proxy, access rules and other nerdy features should go into an
ad-hoc service and should be described in a separate document.

XEP-0136 had also a very simple concept.

The XEP is 91 pages long. Even reading it will take a day.
