The problem is that it is not immediately obvious to most people that  
when I give them my JabberID (JID) that they can use their google  
talk account to chat with me. That's a big problem---it's forced me  
to add a lot of verbiage to my contact page just to clarify that  
point: http://www.deepdarc.com/contact

The fact that services like GoogleTalk are shying away from using the  
term 'JID' (or some other suitable vendor-neutral phrase)  will only  
lead to more consumer confusion in the future, and that will hurt  
Jabber/XMPP adoption IMHO.
