This is a valid argument and I see your point.
And in a post 1202050969.9019.33.camel at wing I expressed a reasoning
with the similar conclusion. I agree that presence should be based on
bare JIDs.

I still see a very good use case for having full JIDs on the roster:
to communicate with different facets of the same thing.
Ex. chrome.pl/echo and chrome.pl/broadcast
or +48123456789 at sms.chrome.pl/Gateway1
and +48123456789 at sms.chrome.pl/Gateway2
