Actually it's very simple.  As long as client authors do-it-right
(xmpp uri parsing), then no-one will ever be able to create an
invalid/mis-use-able xmpp uri.

The only reason that html parsing is as terrible as it is, is because
certain browsers *cough* insist on rending invalid pages.  If the
browser out there gave big warnings in large red letters that pages
were invalid, then the pages would be fixed pretty quickly.
