Pubsub nodes, for instance, are addressable (ie, you can send stuff  
to them) but they share a single jid. This happens not to be within a  
client, but there's plenty of examples of XEP-0030 nodes being used  
for addressing.

If you want your objects to appear as being individually addable to  
rosters, etc, then you do have a problem, but the solution is really  
to use multiple connections, since you'll find it extremely difficult  
to add full jids (ie, ones with a resource) to rosters with most  
clients anyway.

Of course, you could always use the component protocol, which *will*  
give you multiple jids within a domain on a single connection, which  
you can then process how you want.
