No.  And frankly, it is annoying NOT to get the presence, because  
then you have to add special-case code to your roster for any users  
who DO want their own JID there.  So that every time you change your  
own status, you have to go look up if your own JID is on your roster  
and generate an event just like a presence change for it.  Hardly a  
disaster, but makes the status stuff messier than necessary.
