IMHO, the example given illustrates perfectly that the issue is not with JID
escaping, but rather with the  address translation between XMPP and any
other communication/IM namespace.
We have a logic associated with converting the MSN namespace to the XMPP
namespace, and the legacy solution has been to include the MSN address as
the node in the gateway addressing. If we come up with another mapping
between the two namespace that does not contain a logic in the node, then
the escaping of @ should not be necessary. Unless I am missing something...

JID is not an URI, but will often be used in URI, e.g:
im:jajcus at jabber.bnet.pl

So, "example at example.com" in MSN network accessed via a transport
gateway would have JID e.g.: example%40example.com at msn.jabber.example.com
Which written as na URI would be:
	im:example%2540example.com at msn.jabber.example.com
This could be misleading. But you are right. This can be done and can be
usable if implemented properly.
