I think this could be usefull to think about adding this feature.
If you disable a user, it happens that its client might retry to
connect before getting kicked again and so on. This connection /
deconnection series can hurt a server.
If you think about simply preventing the user to send message packet
(and optionnaly presence and maybe iq to other clients), I feel that it
makes more sense. 
You also have the extra benefit that the user can get messages and thus
can be notified when he has voice again.
