I must study how privacy lists work (don't know if they need some
extension or we can use them in this way), but the best solution in
this case seems a set of privacy rules allowing asymmetric presence
distribution. When I'm online with a mobile there may be at least
three groups of users:
- symmetric presence exchange (as it works now, I want being
constantly informed about their status and let them know mine)
- asymmetric presence: let them know my status, but don't update me
with theirs until they do some action (e.g. a message) or I query
- no presence at all: don't bother with these contacts when I'm with a mobile
