Urm. I meant XEP-0018 Invisible Presence. And XEP-0186 Invisible Command
is same as Invisible presence, only the trigger packet is IQ instead of
presence. Both specs 

XEP-0016 Privacy List is actually quite good.

Let's start speaking names, not numbers - less space for typos. ;-)

We really could do better [than simple invisibility] with Privacy Lists.

For the rest, let me start a new thread. :-)
