[jdev] Necessity of stringprep support for the client

Can XMPP work in conformity with XMPP Core if it can't do stringprep?
The question has arisen because of js that doesn't have a possibility to
do stringprep transformations and it's hard to do in script because we
will need to download huge tables to the client.

My solution was to stringprep with a special query to a server. Though
that approach works good with several optimizations (we can stringprep
on client if jid has no unicode characters, we can cache once
stringprep'd jids) has obvious cons like dependence on the
stringprep'ing service.

With best regards,
