if the error is delivered to the client the server is doing something 
wrong. Even though (iirc) 6121 does not explicitly specify how to handle 
the error, delivering it to a users client without modifying the roster 
is certainly not the right thing.

See http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/xmpp/current/msg00057.html and 
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/xmpp/current/msg01406.html for some 
background information.
