Which "other packages"? Any and all that exist now or might ever be created?

Jabber.el is not part of the Emacs distribution, AFAICT.

If, as you say, there is no code distributed with Emacs that uses `C-x C-j',
then that global binding should be fine for Emacs to use (modulo some other
reason against it).  At least I've never before noticed any reluctance to use
bindings that might be used by some 3rd-party code.

3rd-party bindings could be taken into consideration, all other things being
equal, but where would you draw the line?  Which 3rd-party code would merit
respecting its bindings?  Such code ranges from tiny, personal customizations to
giant, stable libraries used by many people for years.  Which bindings should
Emacs take care not to appropriate?
