I know that and I wouldn't deploy that on jabber.org either. Plus, it  
might look strange if the jabber.org server offers such services. But  
what would be possible is to have a list of public gateways and use  
one of these ;).

Of course, but having one client which we call the official client  
will be contraproductive for every other client.
