True true, many people only think that when we are talking about XMPP.
But the last 2-3 year when I've been doing Software and XMPP consulting, I've used XMPP as middleware both on satellite maritime projects to set-top boxes and handheld devices for TV viewing. No chat involved here, but only used as middleware for synchonious states, push data, pub/sub, routing on JID schema etc.
