[jdev] Resource Identifiers

Greetings -


RFC 3920 says that the Resource identifier should be opaque to both the
client and server.  My question is how opaque is opaque?  If I am a
client and I have several different types of resources (cell phone,
desktop app, etc.) connect to a server when messages are sent to a JID,
should said message go to all said resources?  


Also unclear is who sets the resource ID.  It makes sense that if I am a
client, I know what my resource ID SHOULD be, but I may not necessarily
know that an identical resource could exist and cause a potential
collision.  When would a resource be bound by the Server, and how would
that be communicated back to the client?
