jabber.org is dedicated at end users and xmpp.org not. Stupid users
will cleary see that www.xmpp.org is not the place where they have to
register an account...there is no doubt about that as that site is too
technical...this is not true for www.jabber.org

Besides that, xmpp.org is a website about the protocol and no XMPP
service. If we link to jabber.org (which is an XMPP service), this is
not fair for other XMPP based services. We prefer to link to an
independent site that lists XMPP compatible services, clients,
libraries, and server software.

Mvg, Sander Devrieze.
