Ok.. I'm catching up and would like to comment on the previous named thread on
something David Waite said:

If you read the x:data JEP there is a good starting point for providing just
this feature.  Include an x:oob within the iq:register.  Like this:

<query xmlns='jabber:iq:register'>
  <x xmlns='jabber:x:oob'>

That seems like a very machine discoverable mehtod of providing the URL to
register with.  And fits very cleanly inside the guidelines of the Jabber

And I am all for cleaning up In Band Registration with this, x:data
references, and anything else we can think of to secure passwords.
