I've talked to 3 Freenode staffers today, they all said the same thing -
this is a very commonly requested feature, they know nothing about XMPP,
but would love it so long as they have proper means of controlling access.
That is, it doesn't become a way for people to abuse the service.

Lets put this in context - Freenode has an experimental tor service which
allows people to connect to it directly from within Tor without having to
use an exit node.

I'm working with charybdis developers to discuss how they'd like to see
this implemented and develop a GSoC plan.  I could likely get one of them
to co-mentor it with an experienced XMPP developer.
