Ahh...a practical use for CTSP/CTCP transparency I was talking about :)

If entities are all treated the same (same basic Jabber protocol), it 
would be very simple for people to set up their own meta-lists with 
routing and forwarding, etc.

Hmm...abstracting this, then each client could have a set of "lists", 
which would each have a list of users.  Some lists would be "private" 
(personal buddy list?, family list?), some could be "public", like a user 
group, which was viewable and messagable by everybody.
