Unless I'm mistaken, the JUD is just a database of jabber users/ids.
An entry in here doesn't mean that an account is set up.

Well, sure. All the tools are their in their basic form: LDAP
query, Jabber protocol libraries, and so on. FWIW, I've written
a Jabber transport so that you can search LDAP servers using
the user search facilities in Jabber clients. Just point the config
at an LDAP server and away you go!

Sure, iq:search fits the JUD very well. Sticking my neck out,
I'd say that as the JUD is pretty flat (i.e. no hierarchy to
speak of, except ...
... I'm not sure what browsing would bring, apart from a big iq
Unless of course hierarchy levels could be artificially brought
to life on the fly according to certain attributes of the JUD
That said, browsing an _LDAP_ hierarchy is useful. See
as an example of the results of an 'LDAP reflector' transport that
reflects an LDAP hierarchy as a browse hierarchy.
