I wouldn't set things like this in stone.

Yes, setting the priority back to -1 would solve some of these problems, but 
ultimately the priority field is present so that it can be USED.  If we 
really wanted all clients in an away state to receive no messages addressed 
to the bare JID, then the routing rules would would have specified that the 
status value is more important when choosing which resource to route to.
