Would it not be better to create a protocol that works correctly when 
privacy lists are in place? And still reduces the bandwidth?

Something like JEP-0033 but where instead of including all the addresses 
in each stanza you negotiate a distribution list with the remote server 
and just send the stanza to that distribution list that in turn 
distributes the stanza to all the people i.e.

<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' 
to='s44sdasb4444dedd at multicast.capulet'/>

which in turn gets distributed to:

<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' to='juliet at capulet'/>
<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' to='nurse at capulet'/>
<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' to='peter at capulet'/>
<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' to='sampson at capulet'/>
<presence from='romeo at montague/inlove' to='gregory at capulet'/>

Would make it much more "smart".
