1. Why do we restrict to jabber.org users?
  I do not have jabber.org account and do not intend to have one.
2. I don't really see the correspondence between jabber.org jabber
server userbase and software map users.
3. I'm concerned about the passwords security.
  Leakage of jabber.org passwords would give us a very bad PR.


May I propose a system we are using on http://jogger.pl
Usernames are users own Full JID's.
If you want to authenticate you need to enter your JID at the site, or
message the jogger bot with "<PASS/>" message.
The bot sends you your initial password in reply and you are able to
authenticate at the jogger.pl site.
