Found! http://xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc3920.html#bind
It's already specified: the server may override the resource (some, as
google, do):

A server SHOULD accept the resource identifier provided by the client,
but MAY override it with a resource identifier that the server
generates; in this case, the server SHOULD NOT return a stanza error
(e.g., <forbidden/>) to the client but instead SHOULD communicate the
generated resource identifier to the client in the IQ result as shown
