I though we just decided that wasn't a valid answer. 

For the case "stpeter at jabber.org" this approach (mostly) it works fine. 

For the case where the JID has a resource (stpeter at jabber.org/weather),
it fails - 'cause if the weather client is not online, you're going to
get the notification delivered to whatever client is logged on with a
positive presence priority.
