Ah...I see. But wouldn't it be better to assign, say, a "restricted" prefix
to each instance of this?

For instance, let's say that website ABC wants to send a message to
JabberOwner8, so what if we created a restricted prefix ABC(for instance)
and assigned all anonomyous messages a random number(or incremented number)
after ABC? For instance have something like ABC5.....

Or if not, than what would the real Jabber user see when they got a message?
Anonymous5 or equivilent? Wouldn't it be better to at leasr identify the
server it somes from?

Correct me if I'm wrong ;-)
