I am open to the idea of providing JID's. Currently, its like an organization (e.g. google) not providing a @google.com email to its employee because they already have a @gmail.com account.

Yes, I agree that it wont add any immediate value, since most of us will continue using our current jabber id's, but then until we have the system in place, further opportunities and possibities will always be like some talk at the dinner table. Though we will need to think how will we be maintaining this system. Who is going to issue new JID's everytime a new member joins in and what happens to JID's of outgoing member.
