[Standards-JIG] roster synchronization

The consensus from this morning's Jabber Council meeting [1] is that we 
are not comfortable with the presence-based solution described in the 
Roster Subscription Synchronization proposal [2], and that we would 
prefer to move forward with a solution based on JEP-0093 [3] or, more 
likely, a revised version of JEP-0093 (which we would publish as a 
separate, standards track JEP to supersede JEP-0093). We would also 
prefer to find a solution that will address both roster synchronization 
with gateways and the desire for "shared groups" as described in 
JEP-0140 [4]. Obviously, integrating this with JEP-0100 [5] for gateways 
would also be required. Since I am author of JEP-0093, JEP-0100, and 
JEP-0140, I have volunteered to write a suggested solution here (i.e., 
the replacement for JEP-0093, the modifications to JEP-0100, and a 
replacement for or serious modification of JEP-0140).
