No, I disagree, the sm-id is allocated by the server, the server can  
put as much meaning into it as it wants. It's still opaque to the  

If the server's implementation means that it needs to have access to  
the full jid, then it should encode that into the sm-id.

There is abolutely no need at all to make such encoding interoperable.
