And what about buddies that use another XMPP server (either on the same
XMPP account or another one)? Your data still crosses the Internet, but
they'd have an XMPP icon that's "secure". We've been over this before.
This is an example of something Ethan covered in this very thread.

Plus this is an example of why you might want this information in the
conversation window, not the buddy list, which Etan has covered a
million point five zero three two times.
