Interesting point.  I already feel that the existence of jabber.org addresses 
is confusing ("jabber" is a protocol and a service?), and so I should 
probably feel the same way about xmpp.org addresses.  Though, at least the 
latter would not be given out freely.

(/me still wants to rename jabber.org)
