[trouble with MSN specific JID presentation, snip]

Sorry, i've been reading only the last few days, so if an answer was
already posted, just redirect me there.

Why can't MSN transport's JID just be managed as other transport, by
having a client side convertion from a JID to a nick presentation.

That's what most client do with jabber's JID, with transport JID... it
associates a nick with that JID. (using rosters).

I just don't see any reason why MSN should behave differently. Why would
you want to present it differently to the use ?
Maybe include a global (not MSN specific) way of getting a "prefered
nick" from a user, so you can get how he likes to be called. (Usually
that would be the user part before the @ in jabber's JID, and might be
the msn's MAIL, if the transport wants to show it that way.)

In any case, when i talk to someone, i prefer to see a name/nick I
associate with that person, rather than having a JID or a MSN mail.
It's just more... human.
