[JDEV] Transport readiness

lets say there's a user already registered with some transport.
When the user logs on, is there anything that the protocol guarantees
the transport will send to the user when its OK to start
sending messages through it (ie it logged on to the service for you
and won't ignore your messages silenty)? Some seem to send presence, is
this mandated, a courtesy, something that you can make happen for
any given transport?
Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that you can't really
unambiguously determine whether a 'JID' is intended for a transport or
not unless you're a host. eg joey at joop.sloop.net is this a jabber user
joey on the jabbers server joop.sloop.net or joey through the joop
transport on sloop.net (in which case you have to make sure you're
register with it and that its ready)? I'm working with some automated
jabber stuff if context helps make sense out of the questions.
