[jdev] Presence Subscription to nonexistent contact

Hi all,

If as a user I send a presence subscription request to a contact - suppose
it's in my same domain for the time being - that does not exist, what
happens? It looks from my experiments so far that the contact does get
added to the user's roster with a subscription type of "none" and
ask="subscribe". However, at a later time, should the contact spring into
existence and log in, that contact will not receive the presence
subscription request.  Is this correct behavior? If so, is there anything I
can do to inform the user of this so the user knows to retry the
subscription request at a later time?
