c2s TLS and s2s TLS are treated differently, I hope? There are many
servers around that support c2s TLS but not s2s TLS. Probably it would be
good to discern s2s TLS with certificate checking from s2s TLS using
dialback (I'm not sure - Mawis?).

In case you use this as a definition text for the feature, please include
"Unicode characters in passwords" explicitely. Some time ago, most clients
I checked were perfectly unicode compliant APART from handling unicode in
passwords (has been fixed in the clients I checked in the meantime, but it
seems to be a common mistake).

Otherwise fine :-).
