Yes, and the alternative approach was described here:

I'm not sure what that would solve?

The idea behind the approach is that the receiver's resources tell the 
receiver's server which resource all Jingle session-initiate stanzas 
addressed to the receiver's bareJID should be sent to. The idea being 
that the receiver is in the best position to decide which resource 
should receive Jingle session-initiate stanzas (not the sender or a server).
