1. Privacy.
2. To not turn public MUCs into treasure troves for spam bots. All of these JIDs have an active client signed in, so they are great targets.
3. Best practices currently dictate that resources should be random, as they are privacy-sensitive. That’s almost opposite of revealing it to everyone in a room.
