[JDEV] IQ queries sent to client vs. handled by server?

I've got a question regarding nonstandard IQ queries, i.e. ones where I 
make up my own namespace that is not already known to the server. 
According to the "Generic XML Namespace Storage" draft document, such 
queries will get or set XML data stored on the server per-client: "If 
the client does an iq set in any XML namespace to the server, it is 
stored on that users account. That XML is then accessible to anyone 
doing an iq get with the same namespace to that user account." 
<http://docs.jabber.org/draft-proto/html/xml.html>

This is great in some circumstances. But what if I want to define 
queries that are "live" and go directly to the client? (Isn't that what 
the JAM project is all about?) How do I control who resolves the query?
