Why not provide a URL or pubsub address in the status element? I have
over 1000 people in my roster. I don't think they all need or want to
receive a large essay from me about why I'm logging off. But sending
them to a URL or pubsub node enables them to read my essay if they
really want to (their clients could even retrieve it automatically).
