I don't read it that way. I read it:

They one to have "O'Hara" as their username in the account backend (e.g. 
the LDAP server) and they may for example log in to the website as 
"O'Hara" then. But with that username, their JID will then be 
"o\27hara at example.com". And as long as you display a JID you will 
display "o\27hara at example.com". But if you only present the username, 
than you may present "o'hara" again (but this username then does not 
contain the "@example.com" part).
