That sounds a bit like the Jabber over BEEP binding Iain Shigeoka
proposed in 2002
Well the proposal sounded a bit to radical for me in 2002 and I did not
like the idea of Jabber switching from TCP to BEEP as it would have ment
a completely incompatible change of the Jabber protocols. (I feared this
especially because Iain called that JabberNG.)
But I have to admit, that I never forgot the idea of Iain, and it got
some attraction on me. Especially as the Jabber/XMPP protocols have
advanced, and we already have different bindings of Jabber and ways to
support them in parallel (JEP-0124, JEP-0156).

Sorry, but changing/enhancing the authentication to detect phantom
connections is just a dirty work-around.
