XMPP port conflict, for instance.

OK, this is your use case.
But if you have a platform with both native and web API's, where most
functionality is done in middleware, and only exposed to JS, then do
you suggest using a different API?
Would that still be sysapp target?

This a fork point, so we need to resolve this.

I see easier to design the API's in a way to work with both setups.
Then, for the additional stuff what you plan to implement in JS, you
simply don't use the sysapp API's, and don't even implement them. I
still want to specify, implement and use API's e.g. for MMS, email,
and instant messaging. I guess others will want that too.
Saying that you want to fulfill only your own use case and everyone
else is on their own is pretty rude in an API standardization
exercise.

Best regards,
