[Juser] Presence, Priority, and Missing Messages

I have a question about priorities and message routing. I gather that
Jabber is a network where the resource with the highest priority
*always* wins, and presence is not considered for message routing. I
have also noticed a nice feature of gajim where it automatically
lowers priority when away.
Now, my question is mainly one of how this interoperates with offline
storage and the like. Say I have a Jabber client running 24/7 at home
and at work. At night, I go to sleep and they both are set to a low
priority since I'm away.
Say someone sends me a message in the middle of the night, and it goes
to my home machine (due to when I logged in or whatever). In the
morning, I go straight to work without touching my home PC. When I
get there, my work machine's priority is raised. But what of that
message I got in the middle of the night? I probably won't see it at
work. Same scenario could occur while I'm driving to work or
So is there a good solution to this? If I set up a privacy list that
only goes into effect when I'm away, will the message be routed
elsewhere? (That is, does blocking impact routing?) Can I have
messages routed both places?
