You discovered a bug in host_config option, or maybe in the anonymous code:
it doesn't treat the domain as case insensitive.

A quick solution is to put the domain name in lowercase:

I'll report this problem to the ejabberd bug tracker.

Right. Make that configuration change and you'll get something like:

  <starttls xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls'/>
  <compression xmlns='http://jabber.org/features/compress'>
  <mechanisms xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-sasl'>
  <register xmlns='http://jabber.org/features/iq-register'/>
