Personally, i would not make parent-child relations. I would just group
jids together in a metacontact:
	<metacontact>
		<contact jid="remko at fab4.be" />
		<contact jid="remko at msn.fab4.be" account="mytransports at jabber.org" />
	</metacontact>
And then let the client only show the status of the first (available) contact
in the list for example.

Making parent-child relations complicates a lot, especially ordering and
reordering contacts, the semantics of metacontact operations, ...

cheers,
Remko
