Yes, Conversation is just a use case to help identify relevant features.  
Sory if that was unclear from my previous remark.

Yes, rtcquickstart.org authors (and others) praise Prosody for being 
popular, usable and available.

I praise Ejabberd for being popular, usable¹, available, and stable.

Like rtcquickstart.org authors, I have no proof to back me up on that, 
only a personal subjective experience for several years.

¹ In the past, Ejabberd had a weird configuration file format, but that 
is standard YAML nowadays.

Yes, and you do too, as we discussed it at our #freedombox irc channel 
Sundy 8th were I shared this: https://gitlab.com/hanno/ejabberd-config
