Are they really searching for JSON over XMPP or are they searching for
object over XMPP and it happens that JSON is a string only
representation of objects (that is commonly known) and thus can be
easily put in body which only takes strings? I would like to find and
fix the real issue that developers have with XMPP rather than
establishing a base for a bad practice that developers adopted because
of an issue. This XEP is rather trying to improve symptoms and not to
fix issues.
