I suggest to popularise the idea of identical email and XMPP
address. While this is, of course, optional, it makes contact
matching even more easy than with phone numbers.

As long as 98.7% of the planets email population happen to use
the same provider and this very provider dropped XMPP support,
it is, unfortunately, difficult to achieve.

Btw: You can reach me as {mailto,xmpp}:debacle at debian.org :~)

Btw': Thanks for your notes, Tobias!
