The definition as per RFC is "active", hence I stated that.  I doubt
there's a need to define yet another state :-)

But really, a resource can ping-pong between active and available
states by sending presence stanzas of available and unavailable

Instead of changing a particular implementation that does what seems
"right" and sends roster pushes to "active" resources instead of the
"available" ones, I'd like this to be part of the new spec - with
appropriate consensus, of course.
