What happens if an 'iq' gets stored for user at server/resource1.. does it 
get retrieved when user at server/resource2 comes online later?

Do iq results get stored offline, if the request was marked to be stored 

Instead of overriding 'iq' to have 'message' delivery semantics, why not 
just use messages? I don't quite understand the reasoning.
