It's not. An open source client can be developed by everybody.  
Everybody can participate, write patches, etc. If it's the official  
client, everybody will focus on that.

jabber.org is just a server. It's run by the XSF. Not everybody can  
administrate it and thus abandon other servers. Sure, one could  
develop for ejabberd and hope jabber.org will be updated to the latest  
rev. But it's still different, as ejabberd isn't the official server  
software.

PS: Please don't CC me, I'm on the list - I have to be on the list,  
otherwise I can't write.
