Huh, I guess this has been removed in the latest IETF docs, guess I should
start working from them instead of the February 2002 one.

I can't believe this misconception is still around :)

There never has been a type="available" since a presence packet is
intrinsically always "available" unless you specifically type it to
something else (it's *presence* after all).  The server actively removes
the type attribute if it's set to "available" both because the docs were
confusing on this at one point back in 99/2000 and some prototype client
was sending them.
