I exchanged an email with the author of that article. The phrase "exploratory project" is better attributed to Jim Highsmith, who suggested that exploratory projects were the "sweet spot" for agile (not necessarily XP) development--IOW, it doesn't necessarily preclude the use of agile for other projects.

Thanks Jeff. This link also explains the connection between XP and CMM quite well. Though it's early days yet.
What a way to learn about a lot of things :
Eclpse, XP and CMM (which I think includes managing risk).
What is CMM-i ?

CapabilityMaturityModelIntegrated
The CMMI is the Software CapabilityMaturityModel extended in several ways:
to include SE-CMM (systems, not just software);
to include SA-CMM (acquisition and use of COTS products);
to fold in the IPD-CMM (Integrated Product Development)
to reduce the effects of the 'frameworks quagmire' (see http://www.software.org/quagmire
other structural changes, such as an overall Measurement and Analysis process area. Agilists in particular may want to check out some of the new PA's (no longer called KPA's) such as Integrated Teaming.
The CMMI also offers two "representations":
"staged": maturity levels 1-5 similar to the SW-CMM
"continuous": capability levels which better support independent evaluation of individual process areas

Both XP and CMM are to a great amount risk management strategies - though certainly quite *different* strategies...
