With IRC, we are hosted by freenode. Not only does freenode host us, but virtually any other open source project as well. There's a real advantage for someone in #ubuntu (for example) to simply be able to join a Drupal room with no extra setup. I'm not aware of any XMPP hosts for open source projects on the scale of what freenode does, but I'd be interested to hear about any if they exist.
