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.
