I always thought that if there is any subscription, contact have to be
in roster, but besides that roster and subscriptions are orthogonal.
What if the contact isn't interested by exchanging presence and prefers
only exchanging messages?  Most clients I've seen consider these
contacts unavailable and allows to hide all unavailable contacts.
