[ejabberd] XMPP for "Live" Open Street Map

Hi all

I think you already know
http://openstreetmap.org

Everybody can edit the map - it works like Wikipedia.

All the edit clients send XML data to a central database.
To synchronize other databases there are diffs available:
http://planet.openstreetmap.org/minute/

At the moment there is a discussion about live data:
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2009-May/thread.html#36814

Now my question:
Would it be possible to post all the Open Street Map for distribution to 
a jabber server?
The easiest way would be to post all the incoming XML data directly to a 
jabber groupchat.
Everybody could listen to the groupchat and do with the data what he wants.

BUT there are really lots of data. Today I've seen 300kByte per minute 
and it was a silent day.

Is ejabberd able to handle that payload?

Thanks

Bernhard
