the reason in limiting it is that only certain people with certain jabber
addresses can page me through that transport.  this way, if i authorize
someone to add my pager, at a later time i can remove them from the list
of people.  and, in the end, they still don't know my pager number.  with
this method, the user who sends a message to my pager may only ever be
able to find out the 167289 at pagers.jabberhost.com, and even then, later
may not be allowed to send a message to it.
