Totally agree, but I always had my doubts of how well this would work
- I use my JID to log-on with Psi for IM;
- two or more scripts I wrote are already logged on with my own
account doing some automated actions over XMPP. They use negative
If I log-of, the other resources will still make me "online". Also,
there is no capability I can advertise that would mean "Not For Chat"-
This bots want to be online, because the services they are
interacting with want to react to their presence, but they shouldn't
be representations of my personal IM status.
What I do now is use a different account for them, but it seems wrong.

That was a project at a place I used to work.
I always add the dream of seeing a MUC chatroom with all the
mailservers of a SMTP-cluster chatting and exchanging IP's of known
spam sources that would get blocked with IP tables. Image entering
such a room and saying: "all, block x.y.z.w"
