Presence priority is used to differentiate between simultaneous 
connections from multiple devices. Most XMPP servers use the presence 
priority in deciding where to route messages sent to the "bare JID" 
("user at domain.tld") of a user. So a message sent to romeo at montague.net 
will be routed to the full JID ("user at domain.tld/resource") with the 
highest presence priority.
