Hmm, well I don't see why the instance resources couldn't live next to
the nicknames. Along the same line, there is no reason why MUC rooms and
IM accounts couldn't live in the same namespace (jdev at jabber.org and
ralphm at jabber.org, for example). I have no strong preference for
changing this (yet), but just wanted to relay my observation.
