Well, I thought about it some more.

Please note something in XEP-0215:

"This method should be used only as a fallback when DNS SRV lookups are
not possible for the client or server."

Now, I wonder why we're going to spend a lot of time defining something
that is essentially DNS-SRV over XMPP. Why not encourage people to
deploy SRV instead?
