Have it as a contact on the users roster which represents the presence
service, if that contact can see the users presence the user is opting in.

x:data forms seems like a perfect fit here
> 3. Jabber server and web server need to share information
Easiest way for this would be for them both to share a database of
presence information with a jabber component keeping it up to date.
