I agree. Non-contacts should be able to request a voice or whatever
session with me. My decline may need to be silent if I don't want them
to know if I'm online though. An example I can think of is adding voice
to these live support services. Clearly I don't want my customers to be
forced to request presence from the live support service just to
troubleshoot some problem they're having. That also pollutes their
roster with one off contacts as well.
