What is the benefit of having a remote control interface (fraught with
security issues) versus having options for "normal" manipulations that
indicate operation on another resource of the same bare JID?
While I can envision some situations where you really do want remote
control of a client, if the main problem is that a user forgot to set
his status on another client, it seems simpler and more robust to have
the server make those changes.
