By which you mean XEP-0106, right?

Right. So I think you're arguing that we should make JID Escaping 
required in Basic Server 2008. My only concern is that there are a few 
outstanding issues with XEP-0106 and I think it needs to be revised a 
bit to address those. Also I'd be curious to know how many servers 
already have support for JID Escaping.
