I guess he does not want to transform his presence for all users, but 
just for a group of users. So he wants something to have different 
groups of contacts, that get different presence.

And while I understand that this might be something useful, I don't 
think, that this should be handled by privacy lists. (You don't want to 
change your privacy list every time you want to change your presence to 
one of your contact groups, will you?)
Maybe we need something new inbetween the general presence and sending 
out individual presences to contacts.
