ARGH. Despite what /some/ of the Internet Drafts say, type="available" 
/is/ a part of the protocol. Any docs which leave it out are in error.

That said, I agree that we need a type="visible" -- it definitely helps 
to further differentiate the difference between visible/invisible and 

Perhaps look into updating the Presence JEP. What's the process to get a 
JEP updated/changed? (I think that would make more sense than making a 
whole new JEP)
