Smart clients can discover the proxy. Using disco#items on your domain  
and then disco#info on each entry.

Not that many smart clients out there unfortunately. I believe that  
libpurple still requires manually setting the proxy. If only they  
would provide a sane default like proxy.jabber.org...

And even if a client is smart enough to find it, some server admins  
don't know or noticed that they have to set an aditional SRV record  
for the proxy domain.
