I am bringing up an old issue (dated back in 2001) about supporting 
invisible mode for transport users.

I have found that when "<presence type="invisible"/>" is sent out, the 
transports will simply lose connections.

Is there any thought on how to get invisible to all users, while 
maintaing connectivity to the transport gateways?

At least, is there any way to get invisible to all Jabber users, while 
get visible to all transport users? I know there is a way of sending 
invisible presences to individual users, so that we could potentially 
send invisible requests to all Jabber contacts, but it may not be a good 
elegant or practical solution.

Any idea?

Thank you.
