While I agree that we should use presence whenever possible, IMO it's 
just not realistic to believe that everyone we want to voice call is 
going to give up their privacy to us (i.e., allow us to subscribe to 
their presence).

The list of people who are allowed to call me is much longer than the 
people who are permitted to see my presence, I expect I am not alone in 

This issue was raised during both the Jingle talks at FOSDEM, so IMHO 
exploring the possible solutions is a worthwhile exercise.
