[JDEV] IQ Packets

When sending <iq/> stanzas to a client, they must be addressed to the 
"full" JID (e.g. "foo at jabber.org/resouce").  In the case of clients, 
only providing a "bare" JID (e.g. "foo at jabber.org") attempts to query 
that user's server for the requested information (IIRC).

Since the namespace is unknown to the server, it looks up that user's 
public storage (not sure if that's documented anywhere, but it behaves 
similarly to "iq:private") (again, IIRC).
