While I can understand the use case, I also believe it’s low value compared to potentially negative consequences. I think at most this could change from MUST to SHOULD in order to encourage the full-jid restriction, and prevent the can of worms from opening too far, but allowing the use case for implementations that choose to allow the use case.

+1 for allowing this use case. I think it would improve the consistency

I think that LMC is already a huge can of worms, and should be treated
accordingly by clients. If your client B sees a different message from
what you sent from client A, and you LMC that message on B, you are
probably already aware of the differences.
