Comment (by markbanang):

 I have discovered a specific use case for this.

 If you are using Pidgin with ''HipChat'' then ''HipChat'' requires you to
 use your real name as your handle when entering a chatroom rather than
 your username. If you don't do that, it returns a '''{{{406: Not
 Acceptable}}}''' error.

 That means that when using ''HipChat'' with Pidgin, you have to use
 '''Join a Chat...''' (where you can explicitly enter a Handle) and type in
 the room name, rather than just selecting a room from the Room List and
 clicking '''Join'''.
