	Indeed it is, my apologies.

	I admit, I can't see why the recommendation is there except anal  
retentivity when the server is already generating unique bare JIDs. If  
the bare JID is unique to a given stream then the resource is  
completely redundant as there should never be any reason (that I can  
see, anyway) for resource mapping to come into play. By definition  
there will never be more than one resource to any given bare JID.
