That's an intriguing suggestion.

The traditional approach to invisibility has been to stop presence
broadcasts at my server, so they would never get to your server (let
alone your client). Once presence gets to your client, it may be shown
to you (if your client doesn't understand <show>invisible</show>) or you
may be able to pull it off the stream (via XML debug or whatever). So at
that point my presence is leaked.
