You don't have support for it in BOSH, either, so either way it'd be
introducing a new feature that wouldn't be well-supported for a long time.

(If you think there are scalability issues, it would be more useful to
discuss them, rather than talking about features in isolation.  Scaling XMPP
seems straightforward: load-balance the XMPP/BOSH front ends via DNS or any
other mechanism, and handle message routing behind the scenes.  Exposing
that to the front-ends seems unnecessary, and just introduces ways for
things to go wrong.)
