You can, I guess. But I thought this guy was looking for a data feed
that he could use to auto-populate the list of servers his client shows
to a user who has not yet registered an account with any server. So if
you need an XMPP server connection in order to discover which XMPP
server you might register with, then you have a bootstrapping problem, no?
