Yup. An empty presence has just as much impact/meaning (aside from
network utilization and obviously some processing time) as one with
status information or other payload data.

Even with an empty presence payload like <presence /> ?


p.s  Answering below quoted text  is similarly annoying for people with
mobile email clients where only the first X bytes are retrieved by
default ;-)

- From user's point of view: I remember a friend writing a bot some time
ago and sending presence every 10 minutes. The result was a popup in my
client, every 10 minutes.
