I think you mean presence updates rather than roster updates. There  
isn't such a way, but it seems like a practical idea. Of course a lot  
of clients have buddy-pounce functionality which can be useful, so  
you'd need to cater for this, but a first step would be that if you  
want buddy-pounces, then you'd not make the connection dormant.
