Just a random remark while reading this, it's a true issue to change server 
and prove identity (except if old jid is still accessible).
Now that we have a couple a valuable end to end encryption with public key 
which could server as authentication mechanism, would not it be possible to 
use them to check identity in case of server change ?

Maybe this thought would be better on standard@
