you don't need to. You can have multiple list.
Eg one use case is if you use the same jabberId for personal 
communication and at work. At the office you don't want to be bothered 
by friends, so you have one list for that. At home you don't want to be 
bothered with office stuff, so you have another list for that.

If you are a newbie to jabber I would recommend to start with the basic 
features, not advanced features like privacy lists, pubsub or jingle ;-)
