What exactly does binding a hostname mean ? Multiple component JID's 
over the same stream ? If yes, why exactly do we need it ?
Also, since there seems to be no restriction on what can be bound, it 
can potentially bind valid s2s domains ... unlike the current component 
jid which is preconfigured at the server.

Also, how would this interact with dix [1] ? Not sure of the state of 
that submission - but just the support for multiple resources made it 
very useful proposal.
