<jid/> always contains the real jid, if present.
<proxy-jid/> always contains the proxy jid, but is only present if the real
jid is not.

That seems to be what you're asking for, isn't it?

Personally, I dislike the messages coming from the MIX channel's bare jid -
that's inconsistent with how presence works (or, indeed, messages work
normally). I'd rather they came from the full proxy jid.
