[SIP Beyond VoIP] Possibly using SylkServer as SIP Gateway for XMPP

I'm looking at SylkServer for a potential requirement.
We actually using XMPP Server hosted internally for our IM and Presence
usage (eJabberd on Linux) and would like to federate with a customers
SIP-based solution (Microsoft OCS). So I'm considering putting
SylkServer to act as a gateway at the edge of our environment for
connection out to these customers.
From my reading around SylkServer, I infer that this was mainly
developed for the SIP world to reach out to XMPP - however my
requirement is the other way round.
So my questions are:
- Can we use SylkServer (hosted our side) to act as a gateway to
external SIP servers? I note a point on the installation
instructions <http://sylkserver.com/download.phtml>: "SylkServer must
run on a public IP address reachable directly by the SIP clients. If
SylkServer is installed behind NAT using a private IP address, only
clients from the same LAN can make use of it. "
- Is this restriction just to allow support for local SIP Client usage
(which we wouldn't have directly - our local clients would be XMPP) or
will it affect external SIP server connection?
- Do I also need a SIP Proxy Server? and would OpenSIP be a good
candidate for this?
If there is any whitepaper or documentation which would fit my
requirement then please feel free to point me at it.
