Yes.  This is quite useful for scripts that you want to log into your  
account for some reason.  Example, I just wrote a couple of lines of  
python to dump a roster to CSV.  You don't want messages (including  
offline) to come to this resource, and there is no valuable presence  
info to give to subscribers, and you don't need presence indications  
from people to whom you are subscribed.  Therefore, just don't send  
any non-directed presence stanzas.
