Those are write privs -- what about read privs?

My idea is that I would like to automate the "Jabber public servers" 
list, and it would be helpful for me (well, the scripts I'm writing) to 
send a message with a special url to "jabber.ru" or whatever, and then 
the admin for that domain would receive that message and go to the URL. 
This would help me verify that the person actually is an admin for that 
domain, not someone who is masquerading as an admin. I doubt that we'll 
have problems with fake admins, but better safe than sorry. :-)
