I could also send an unavailable and it would be the same problem.

Well, imagine this situation: I send a presence with <show>dnd</show>.  
Then my client sets me auto away and later I return. So it sends a  
global available presence with no show. No peter seems me again. But I  
sent a directed presence because I wanted that he thinks I'm busy and  
doesn't bother me (sorry you have to be our example here, Peter ;)).  
But this is renderes useless by the global presence. IMO, a global  
presence should not replace a directed presence. At least not until  
you send a global unavailable presence or tell the server some other  
way that you don't want that directed presence anymore.

PS: No need to send to me directly and the list, I'm subscribed :).
