There is a pretty substantial problem with this: it would be really hard
to 'register' with the transport for more than one other server, just as
it's not possible to register with more than one ICQ# on a single icq
transport.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that pose a substantial problem
for our current transport registration scheme?
