Yes. But there's a distinct difference in level between trusting a 
remote server not to redirect or copy the presence information, and 
trusting a remote server to make the decision of who to send presence 
information to. It's not the data moving that I care about, it's the 
decision being moved.

           You see things; and you say "Why?"
   But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"
