The way I see it, presence events would only be interesting if they pertain to
a particular chat. So if I chat with you, and you change your status a few
times while the collection of our chat is "open", then those changes would be
logged. But if I never talk to anyone that day, then all the presence
activity wouldn't be logged at all, at least not to a "message archive"
Presence changes are notably interesting in groupchat, else you don't know
when someone has entered or left the room.
I don't think iq should be logged in a collection like this. If we do want to
log other events, for example file transfers, then I think we should have
specific elements for these situations.
