I found another issue with using the bare JID if known: on some IRC 
transports, the bare JID will depend on the connection of the participant, and 
may vary on each join. Normally it would be preferable to have the nick color 
constant.

So I now tend to use the nickname instead of the JID in MUCs. Does anyone have 
objections?

kind regards,
Jonas
