MQTT is an OASIS standard which is a good sign. It also has multiple
already with this one from the Eclipse Foundation looking very promising and
appropriate for RTEMS.
CoAP also looks promising since it has an RFC. And promising implementations
https://github.com/obgm/libcoap is dual licensed as GPL and BSD (why?).

I think those two are worth porting. There are already other ports to
environments so RTEMS should join the list.
The effort would have to get the RTEMS specific configuration and adaptation
code upstream, add RSB recipes, and examples with documentation. I would
honestly expect the ports to be easy enough where more work needs to be
