I guess I don't really know.  I'm also not very familiar with the
libpurple MSN code.  There definitely are other places that make
similar fqy requests that look the same as the one from msn.c (<ml><d
n="example.com"><c n="name"/></d></ml>).  They're isolated to
notification.c, and it looks like there are only two callback
functions that might get MSN_NETWORK_UNKNOWN as the network id:
update_contact_network and modify_unknown_buddy_on_list.  I don't know
if those functions have also started getting MSN_NETWORK_UNKNOWN, and
I don't know if it would matter if they did.

If anyone else wants to investigate, please let us know if you find
any problems!
