With the recent discussion about reliable delivery, I'm somewhat torn 
about blocking. I would feel a lot happier if a blocked user was told 
that their stanza was rejected. <service-unavailable> does this for 
<iq>, for <presence> this is probably unnecessary (apart from maybe 
directed presence), but for messages I'm somewhat reticent to encourage 
stanzas disappearing into a black hole. Is there a convincing reason for 
the messages to be swallowed silently instead of being rejected cleanly?
