Actually, you're only disclosing the fragment of the privacy list
which is relevant to the other server, and that happens no matter what.
Case A: server sends the relevant information to the contact server,
in order to do simpler multicast presence. The contact's server now
guesses the privacy list based on who they see missing from the
Case B: server sends individual presence stanzas to each contact on
the remote server. The contact's server now guesses the privacy list
based on who they see not receiving presence packets.
The amount of information disclosed is the same, so why not at least
reduce the traffic?
