Could it be linked to this old, deferred specification?
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0235.html

Whatever it is, I hope they'll document it at some point.
I'm confident that they will – if they want to allow connection via
traditional clients, it would be counter-productive to force
developpers to reverse-engineer the authentication protocol.
