You call that a cool feature? Giving away credentials to one service, to
other, unrelated?  I would understand using JID as userid and
authenticate it via Jabber (to prove it is authentic and belongs to one
who is to use it), but not giving my Jabber password to any other
service not related with my Jabber server.
