I personally believe that the word "Federated" is important enough to  
include, as it gets the point across that no single entity is in  
total control. I have found that one of the most difficult issues  
when telling people about jabber is getting across the idea that is  
not a single service controlled by one entity. I believe this  
nomenclature will make this more clear.

I would rather "Public Jabber Network" be the informal reference, and  
PFJN be the formal one. I personally feel that "Public Federated  
Jabber Network" is no more clunky than "Public Switched Telephone  
Network", but that's just my opinion.
