Presumably an external component that connects via JEP-0114 could
request the roster for any user on the server, no? And it could even
send presence for any user (probably with negative priority) and then
receive roster updates. So that would enable Idavoll to implement both
the roster and presence access models.

It might not be optimally efficient, but it seems possible. Am I missing
something?
