3) a component that works in the similar way to your option 1 where you 
add the component to your roster in order to authorise it to expose your 
presence on the web, this is how I have been doing it, shouldnt be any 
real scaling issues that other components wouldnt face. This way you get 
the benefits of your option 2 without the drawbacks.
