Yes, I suggested that in the past.

Maybe a new type under automation? See http://www.xmpp.org/registrar/disco-categories.html#automation

Not following.

Go crazy :)

At SAPO, we used sapo:no-chat as a disco feature for SMS contacts. It  
would signal compliant clients not to use their presence as an  
indication of online in a multi-contact setup.

This allowed us to have a multi-contact, with IM and SMS Jids, but  
only using the presence information of the IM contacts.
