Yes and yes. 

The transport is up.  A "register" request to the transpot returns my 
username and nick.  I can send IMs back and forth between Gabber and the 
ICQ client.

When I log into Jabber, I get presence from the transport itself (the 
"Logged into ICQ" status message), but not from the remote ICQ client.
