Hmm, storing resources in the roster is a new one to me. I guess that
implies that you sent a subscribe request to a particular resource, and
that you would then learn about presence of that person _only_ at that
particular resource. Which is probably not what the user of your client
had in mind, although it might be useful in specific circumstances.
In my client, and in the examples I've seen, subscribe requests are sent
to JIDs without resources. That way you learn about that person's
presence no matter where they're logged in.

It depends on what the user model of a "person" is in your GUI. The way
I decided it, my client considers all resources of one JID to be a
single person and displays the status and message of the most-available
resource. In fact, I allow multiple JIDs per person and use the
most-available resource of all the JIDs.
