To me, these sound like things we can improve within the WIAB codebase 
without changing the wire protocol or OT algorithm.

Protobuffs in XMPP might not be the most elegant wire protocol, but 
they're both proven, solid messaging technologies.  I can see appeal in 
replacing them, but for my money the path of least resistance would be 
to improve these implementations.
