Yes, I suggested that in the past.

Maybe a new type under automation? See http://www.xmpp.org/registrar/disco-categories.html#automation

Go crazy :)
At SAPO, we used sapo:no-chat as a disco feature for SMS contacts. It
would signal compliant clients not to use their presence as an
indication of online in a multi-contact setup.
This allowed us to have a multi-contact, with IM and SMS Jids, but
only using the presence information of the IM contacts.
