What about just splitting the payload to be transferred into several 
stanzas? As with TCP, XML stanzas are guaranteed to arrive in the order 
they were sent, so assembling the resulting payload at the receiving 
side is as easy as counting received segments.
Provided you transfer the number of sections/bytes to expect with the 
first chunk of data (or via some kind of the handshake process preceding 
the actual transfer), such re-assembling appears to be rather trivial to 

I suggest you to look at XEP-0047 ("In-band bytestreams").
You not necessarily have to use it as is, but you can draw some ideas 
from it.
