Hey Chris,

I'm now modifying Wildfire to handle usernames or bare JIDs. However, I do 
have a question. Should the server validate that the domain of the bare JID 
matches the domain of the XMPP server? Or is the JID's domain unrelated to 
the XMPP domain and is treated as another REALM related to something else?
