XEP-0142 sounds right on the spot, but (at least to me) poses some  
problems. For a start it is deferred and not recommended to implement,  
and then would normal clients be able to connect to a service? I  
assume not.

I was more looking for something simpler, but maybe it is not  
possible. Could you enlighten me about whether it is possible for a  
component to assume the role of many clients sharing the same xml  
stream? Can these clients send / receive presences have their own  
roster etc as normal clients do?
Thanks again,
