(half-joking)

I would close registration for new users, forcing them to spread around
other servers. With appropiate publicity, of course. Not only because
the reliability issue, but also because XMPP is about power
distribution/federation.

In fact I have friends that are simultaneously in ichat and jabber,
because they see jabber.org as unrealiable. I use JabberMaps
(http://www.jabbermaps.com/servers/) to point out that there exist
servers around with >99.9% uptime in last three months. For example,
nedlinux.nl has a 99.98% uptime in last quarter.

A secondary issue is that we should promote small xmpp servers, almost
"personal" ones. To that, we need a XMPP server easy to configure and
use (jabberd is not there :), hope for the "future" python/twisted based
one), tutorials, a strong jabber admins comunity, etc.
