What does your expression - 'uncontrolled registration' - mean?
What is the definition of 'controlled registration'?
How do you check if the jabber server has 'controlled registration'?

On our jabber.sk server everybody can register account with any length 
and any characters the server (piece of software) is supporting. Is that 
something what means 'uncontrolled registration'?
Is something wrong (not following not well known 'best practices') on 
that configuration of public server?
