I recall that, too, but can't remember where I read it. Is this documented 
anywhere? draft-saintandre-rfc3921bis-04/-05 currently has this to say about 
the topic (section 5.1.1):

"If the message is being sent in reply to a message previously received from 
an address of the form <user at domain/resource> (e.g., within the context of a 
chat session), the value of the 'to' address SHOULD be of the form 
<user at domain/resource> rather than of the form <user at domain> unless the 
sender has knowledge (via presence) that the intended recipient's resource is 
no longer available."
