Personally I really dislike protocols that result in downloading some 
useless little temporary file to your desktop (like all those damn 
".pls" MP3 streaming playlist files.)

I'd much rather add a query to the URL indicating the action:

jabber:snej at jabber.org?action=message   # send IM (default action)
jabber:snej at jabber.org?action=roster   # add to roster

jabber:jdev at conference.jabber.org?action=chat   # join a chat room

As I said, I recall that this is how AIM URLs work.
