It seems to me that disco could easily take these types of jids into account
without significantly changing the protocol (unless I'm missing something).
I agree that it seems that the addressing issues must be solved before
addressing how that change impacts Disco. I would think it would also have
the potential to impact a lot of other JEPs and protocols. We'd have to
cross all of those other bridges in addition. I don't think we should hold
up disco for this reason. (of course, my $0.02)
