I just made my Jabber ID match my e-mail address, but from the context
of some of the e-mails I get at that address, I can tell that they
actually got it from a page that only lists the address as a JID.

So, yes, this happens. Having your own domain and running the e-mail and
Jabber services yourself helps. I suppose ISPs that provide Jabber
services should try and issue a Jabber ID that matches the e-mail address
you get from them. I have seen (many times) ISPs having user at example.com
as the e-mail address and then user at jabber.example.com as the Jabber ID.
This is really not needed. The use of DNS SVR records can help fix this.
