Yes, I've gone back and forth on the title. My research indicates that 
the term "spoofing" covers both address forging (which is very hard in 
Jabber systems) and mimicking (which is relatively easy), so I'd prefer 
something like "Best Practices to Prevent Mimicked JIDs" or somesuch. I 
guess I went with the phishing title because I figured it would get more 
attention. ;-)

Maybe I should make an image out of it?
