In fields where a general JID is expected, I'd say you should display
the full (escaped) JID. - As only this one is a JID.

The whole fuzz about escaping is just to make something a JID, that
wouldn't be one else. So if you need a JID you will always display the
result of the escaping.

IMO you only do unescaping, if you want to display something that is not
a JID but the original address. And you should only do this on places
where the user is aware about the fact, that he does not see a JID, but
an other address.
