if you just add the JID, i can filter out clients who are non-compliant to
the XEP instantly. And can act accordingly.

On the other hand if somebody implements this, and just forgets/ignores to
make sure his algorithm has enough entropy, i will suffer, and i can not
really do anything about it.

Just one for the Security Considerations, if you are admin of a room, you
see real-jids, you should not add these by accident to your display tags,
in anonymous rooms.
