I agree with you, it is rather a mapping than an escaping issue. And as far as I know, only for the MSN gateway.
BTW, if we consider that MSN is supposed to be SIP-compliant (or will in the near-future), this means that as far as the MSN gateway is concerned, we actually need a mapping between XMPP and SIP URIs ... I don't know how this should be handled, since XMPP doesn't support JIDs like sip:node at domain. Maybe you found a neat way to handle this in Antepo's Sametime gateway ? 

Now, for the backward compatibility, I think it is of course desirable, but not a protocol issue, because the MSN gateway could still support the two ways of adressing MSN clients. Or am I missing something ?
