This is all way too complicated. If your client supports the feature
(either for all or only a few contacts), advertise it in caps. If it
chooses to ignore 'attention' stanzas from certain contacts, then it
can do so client-side. This is true for any capability (e.g. i may not
want xhtml information for contacts that use a certain client known to
send ugly html, ...)
