I'm not aware of any server implementations that do NOT allow directed
presence through. This would, for example, prevent anyone from using the
current text-conferencing specification (JEP-45), since people join rooms by
sending directed presence to the room at conference.server.com.

Building an application which uses & relies on directed presence should work
no problem.
