[standards-jig] RFC822 style JIDs

Why not go all the way and apply the node identifier restrictions to the
resource identifier? Then the following would be disallowed:

   " | & | ' | / | : | < | > | @

Those need to be escaped now, but would anyone be seriously hindered if
they were disallowed?

Since JEP-0029 is deferred, it's probably best to discuss this on the
xmppwg list, but it can't hurt to find out what people's feelings are
