sure, so for xmpp service it makes sense to use the existing xmpp
disco, which is non-http. but the question is whether it makes sense
to have a way to /list/ services, rather than relying on the app to
know what to ask for.

if you're going to provide a list, then that has to be on 1 specific
platform. http seems a good choice for that.

it's a choice between server-side aggregation or client-side
aggregation of this list.
