The solution you're suggesting is an example of security through obscurity and will not be implemented. It would be a temporary duct tape fix that would take significantly more time for us to implement than for a skilled hacker to break.

We're also not strictly opposed to third-party software clients joining JJ2 servers. Our goal is to fix any malicious behavior such bots can exhibit. Spam is something we want to address in upcoming updates. You mentioned "messing with server settings" but without additional details we don't know what this is referring to. To our knowledge, clients cannot modify server settings without appropriate admin rights.
