If the read domain name isn't part of the jid (like in evan%40adiumx.com at pidgin.im 
), the system does not use valid XMPP, and thus I don't quite see why  
the XMPP plugin should support that.

Of course, you could implement another plugin that does an SRV lookup  
first, and then passes the result as the host to connect to to the  
regular libpurple xmpp implementation.
