I have a better idea: use primarily protocol names, instead of

This is an excellent idea! I encourage everyone to use protocol names rather than client names.
Now, we can have a (semi)central repository protocol for
federation/search, and that would just mean projects like Thunderbird
or Pidgin, or Ekiga would have to simply implement this protocol -
which would be treated as a "feature" instead of "infringement on
freedom of developers".

The best part is: all the above mentioned protocols use the
user@server scheme.
