This posting is for information only, perhaps it will spark some ideas. I'm
not suggesting this is how we should proceed:

We are currently implementing a custom solution to this problem based on
roster item exchange (JEP-0093). I confess that we extended the JEP with a
new type='remove' to allow for contact removal 'suggestions'. In this case
we have customised the client to automatically accept changes to the roster
proposed by the super-jid "admin at foo.bar". For all other jids, the client
asks the user before changing the roster.
