Hehe, as I was mentioned here let me say something too :-)

Working alone on a project I was tempted to take shortcuts
and implement some things in non-standard way to have results earlier.
There is a reason however to not do this.

No offense to Jive Software who has to provide just working server for
their customers. I understand that.

But breaking standards is something Microsoft is an expert at for years.
And now we end-up with WEB where some sites are only accessible
with IE and others are accessible with other browsers.
Web developers have hard time to create sites accessible from all

So please don't do that again for Jabber/XMPP.
