I don't think, that we need wildcards in id-on-xmppAddr, as I currently
think that wildcards are only useful in xmppAddresses, that only consist
of a domain (i.e. having no user and no resource).
I'd prefer to use the dNSName OID to be used for such wildcarded
addresses. In my optinion id-on-xmppAddr should be limited to only
contain valid XMPP addresses, and a wildcarded domain is no valid XMPP
Therefore I'd like to see wildcard support, but I am against using
id-on-xmppAddr for this.
