For Debian Stable there's an official Backports repository, usually I
manage to get the latest ejabberd release in there in a timely manner.

So as far as I'm concerned, there's no need for an ejabberd snappy app.

I assume it's similar for the other major linux distributions,
especially for releases that don't contain snapd yet.
