That would be really annoying. If presence subscription requests whould
be the only stanzas which go through, that we would receive lots of such
requests from:

hot_blondie_wants_you at hardhotporn.xxx
cheap_v1agra at dsl-234-12-34-54.example.com

etc.

For spammers that would be enough to pass the most important message
they want to send.

Greets,
