OK, so emailing xmpp at google.com prompted them to fix this for our
domains.  Thanks Justin and Adam.

I didn't hear an answer to this question.  But this is the central
controversy of Team Edition.  I think Google knew what they were getting
into, so it will take a lot more than a little complaining to get them
to abandon the Team Edition initiative.


My other worry is with Google Calendar in Team Edition.  As the
calendaring "federation" standard (i.e. CalDAV) evolves, will Google
assume ownership of these domains for calendaring as well?

This would have been so much easier for everyone if they would have
chosen a provisioning scheme that didn't use domains that they didn't
control.  e.g. "domain.tld.google.com"
