But he gets the message (unless he sets negative priority as well) and
clients usually store the messages anyway. The AMP approach doesn't
make clients any more complicated? Really? I think that people should
probably learn how to use XMPP (and clients should help them -- e.g.
by showing that the only connected resource has negative priority.
Based on this you could decide if you want to send the message to the
bare or full JID.).
