I would make the RFC 6365 reference normative.

The ABNF definition for localpart would benefit from citing
[draft-ietf-precis-saslprepbis] by "UsernameCaseMapped profile". 
Similarly for "OpaqueString profile" in the definition of "resourcepart".
 (And, by the way, I wouldn't put quotation marks around the profile

The first paragraph of Section 3.2 defines a particular parsing order,
which will affect a JID such as in example 15, way down below.  I think
it's worth explicitly saying that here, to reduce the likelihood that
such JIDs might be mis-parsed.  You do mention it in the note explaining
example 15, but it'd be useful to highlight it here.

In Section 3.3.1, I find the "i.e."s to be distracting clutter, and
mildly recommend rendering those lines like this:
      U+0022 (QUOTATION MARK): "
      U+0026 (AMPERSAND): &

In example 21, it might be more fun to use PILE OF POO (U+1F4A9) instead.
 Or maybe not...
