Either I could treat the existing presence push mechanism as being
partially broken, poll occasionally, and have reasonably updated
information and, or I could rely completely on the existing presence push
mechanism, and deal with complaints of, say, a mail notification bot
filling up an offline message store, or a pretty web presence bot giving
the wrong information for hours on end.
In this particular situation (mail notification bot), I personally prefer
the fewer complaints option, since the poll traffic isn't leaving the
I like the <iq/> option that JD supplied.
Of course, I'll argue the other way when it comes to chat clients ;)
