The MUC JEP says specifically this:
An implementation may choose to discard extended presence received from a client before updated presence is sent to the occupants. That is, an implementation may choose to reflect only the <show/>, <status/>, and <priority/> child elements of the presence element, with the result that presence "changes" in extended namespaces (e.g., gabber:x:music:info) are not passed through to occupants.
If the author of a component doesn't want extended information to go through
then that is his/her choice. If you don't like it, patch it/don't use it/write
The avatar JEP doesn't say anything about ripping things off, and the IETF
documents only discourages certain extended information in presence stanzas.
