One must keep an open mind.

Yesterday at IETF 86 I had a productive chat with Yusuke Doi on this
topic. He helped me see that, just as we've defined HTTP bindings
(BOSH / WebSocket) for web endpoints like browsers, an EXI binding
would expand the universe of XMPP usage to constrained devices of the
kind that might otherwise use protocols like CoAP.

Although I've not yet had time to read the new EXI proposal in detail,
I shall do so as soon as possible and provide comments on the
standards@xmpp.org list.
