Hmmm. Okay, so that specific example does have the effect of making 
me look like an unusual kind of XMPP user, but I don't think I am.

I'd maintain that the most atypical part of my usage of XMPP is that

For those XMPP users who *do* use chatrooms, I'd imagine it's 
relatively normal that there are "personal" ones and "professional" 
ones, and that these would typically imply different nicknames.

(The fact that most of my professional use of MUC happens to be
