In all this, I get the impression that you design for the fragmented 
case, when each XMPP service provider selects its own behavior for its 
clients and only expects their clients to have communication with other 
clients of the same service provider.

I am still hoping that the world shall return to openness and 
interoperability,  benefiting the users, and in the end thereby also the 
service providers.

Anyway, I think you have what you want if you just delete the last 
paragraph of section 5, and let the fallback ( discovery-less) 
alternative be described as now in 6.2 Activation.

There are enough SHOULDs in the spec to allow isolated implementors do 
it their own way.
