bis spec does not say which to use - while 3921 does.

Currently our thoughts are to keep block list separate from privacy list 
and apply whichever is enabled by client (if neither is enabled by 
client, default privacy list would be - if either is enabled, only 
privacy list or only block list) since we are not able to reconcile the 
differences between both properly .. cant really make one a frontend to 

Also, there is an inability to add wildcard contacts - like in/not in 
roster, in/not contact group, etc : need not be as powerful as privacy 
list, but something simpler along those lines would be great.
