I'll note that they indeed have DNS SRV records for both client and
server, though that gives back an alias (which — I think —is wrong,
though the RFC does not give this precise case. It says only one should
not return a target which is itself on alias; anyway we lose port,
priority, weight, etc. information):

jehan at marmot-balladeuse:~$ ring -t SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.live.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.live.com. is an alias for rds.live.com.nsatc.net.
jehan at marmot-balladeuse:~$ ring -t SRV _xmpp-client._tcp.live.com
_xmpp-client._tcp.live.com. is an alias for rds.live.com.nsatc.net.

Anyone here with a MSN account to make a real s2s test with a client?
My basic telnet tests are not very conclusive.
Anyway that's great news.

Jehan
