XMPP, Connect Server, and SRV

Is there a reason we don't use SRV when a connect server is specified  
for XMPP?  It seems that we should do an SRV lookup on the connect  
server (as we do for the domain, if no connect server is specified)  
and then fallback on the specified server/port.

This would allow connecting to XMPP server foo with username at yourdomain.com 
  by setting your connect server to foo without having to know foo's  
actual server details (specific XMPP server address and port).

Unless there are objections, I'd like to make this change.
