+1 on that!. 
Stanza forwarding could be really nice!. I have like 5-6 accounts, but only uses two. The rest could be forwarded - just like mail. 
We have jabber search (XEP-0055) but yes something more high-level like web finger, opened with vcards and what not could be real nice thing to have. :-)
On my own servers I have it integrated with a LDAP backend, but to have that exposed would be a bonus..
