Ok... I understand the idea of making Jabber name disappear to say
"this is not any kind of network, just the instant messaging standard".
Just like you speak of email, which is not a network but an electronic
Yet somehow, in my deep, I find it sad, but probably some poetic part
of me.

But then I have a funny question for instance: when you have a Jabber
autodiscovery link, when it will be sufficiently a standard so that
browser will take it in account... what will be the icon appearing on
the page? You know, like the rss icon -- some kind of orange radar wave
-- which appears at right of the url when there is a rss autodiscovery?
Just close to it, there could be another icon for Jabber/XMPP: should it
be the X? The bulb? Something else? :D
