One major question is how to crack down on violators... :) The
JabberPowered logo requirements may be a good stick/carrot for that.

He he he.

It is a bit contradictory. You want to use a character _not_ found in
usernames, but that is legal in a the JID username field so you can
represent all possible usernames! Perhaps people should be encouraged to
use a different gateway pattern like:
gateway.hostname at gateway.jabber.server.hostname/gateway.username
Or something similar? If we are going to insist people stop using the
current (non-compliant) pattern we should offer a suggested replacement.
