BTW, that is for the jabber:component:accept namespace, since the server
accepts connections from the component when that namespace is used.

By contrast, the server initiates a connection to the component when the
jabber:component:connect namespace is used. This is less common.

(Older methods also included jabber:component:exec but that is not
documented in JEP-0114 because connecting via STDIO is discouraged.)
