If you complaint is that "http://" prefixed URI's don't mean anything, 
how exactly would making the URI's prefixed with "xmpp://" make it any 
better? What could "xmpp://www.xmpp.org/muc/join-room" possibly mean in 
the context of RFC 4622? The best I can speculate is that a correctly 
implemented client would attempt to authenticate against the server 
"www.xmpp.org" as a user of it own choosing and perhaps it uh... tries 
to send a message to the JID "muc/join-room" ??

Hrm. Well I'm confused. It would be a good way to test the parsing code 
in your implementation I suppose...
