For JIDs: This all has been already solved with stringprep which XMPP
uses (i.e. Codepoints after stringprep normalization). For the case of
roster items: Characters as how they are sent be user user that creates
the roster item (i.e. Codepoints as transmitted).
I don't see where you have a problem with it. - And if you would have
it, you must also have a problem in couting octets, as they very
depending on the type of normalization as well.
