Exactly you beat me to it ;).

Also here are some quesions that need answering below so we can guage what 
exactly if anything "could" get "broken".

1) how many clients are actually generating their own MSN transport JID's 
anyway when registering?
2) And how many are using "jabber:iq:gateway"?
3) Also how many clients are actually taking any meaning from the MSN 
transport JIDs (i.e. decoding them rather than just displaying the JID)?

Personally I havent seen any clients that do 3 and the clients ive tried out 
in the past all seemed to use "jabber:iq:gateway" rather than trying to 
generate their own JID's for transports.
