IMO, the logical sense would be ping the 'server part' of the account -
it would lead to question of "is the server online && has that account"
- the first one can be done by pinging the server, right? -> I think
this usecase (scanning for existing JIDs) is not anything we would like
to allow.

I hope I do not speak complete nonsense, but pinging the bare JID seems
odd to me too.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes.
