Hi Jesper,
I think that more than focusing on P2P Zeroconf IM systems (which is 
something different than XMPP/Jabber), we should look on how we can 
advertise the presence of a XMPP server (and its services like: allowed 
logon domains, supported authentication type etc) on the network.

A good starting point is a previous email by Matt Tucker on this topic
