I don't see why you think that. It's a special thing to have an
@xmpp.org address, a badge of XSF membership if you will. But the server
we run will federate with other servers, so it doesn't violate any
principles of the XMPP philosophy to run another server. But maybe the
iteam will just set up the server and give out addresses if XSF members
want them. If you don't want one, we won't force you to use it. :)
