I suppose the overall workgroup "entity" might be a subdomain, but each
workgroup must be a JID. So, you could have the service live on
workgroups.company.com and have support at workgroups.company.com,
sales at workgroups.company.com, etc.

Shouldn't be possible since a workgroup must always be a JID.


P.S. -- we have an Open Source implementation of the client-side of this
JEP available in the Smack project
(http://www.jivesoftware.com/xmpp/smack). It's not fully up to date, but
should be over the next couple of weeks.
