I think indeed that such an extension is possible in a separate document (and out of scope for '198). Indeed, aside from the resumption target, xep198 is fairly transport agnostic. Adding new resumption targets to SM-over-TCP would also be possible from a separate document (e.g. via stream feature + attribute on <enable/> as negotiation).
