What we do in Kopete is to merge into one metacontact contacts that have the 
same name.

I have read the idea on this very mailing list.

So there is no need of a metacontact specification, and the problem of 
metacontact across account are solved.

What would be the need of having different name for sub-contacts inside the 
same metacontact?  
What would be the point of having the same name for two different metacontact?
