+1 on that.

Sounds reasonable.

I think that's already a step too far. A list implies choice, and
nobody can choose a server from a list. Just forward them to the
jabber.org website.

Well, those are just details, and you can find many more of those.
Bottom-line: it has to be a user-friendly client, with cool features.
