The issue is *exactly* due to limitation in XEP-0198 that you're trying 
to bypass with BOSH: since XEP-0198 doesn't allow you to resume a 
session without re-authentication (and with SASL ANONYMOUS you cannot 
re-authenticate with the same JID), you resort to use BOSH to bypass 
this restriction, since it's *implicitly* using session identifiers as 
authentication tokens.
