No. In the conferences attaching anything to <presence/> is even worse
then in regular IM. In usual IM/P your presence is broadcasted to people
in your roster - people you know and which probably know you. It is an
agreement between you and them what garbage you will send them.
In a conference room you will send your avatar info to people you don't
know anything about.
