Yes, but then you would only need to publish the proper <feature>.

What makes a automated system try a certain protocol is the feature,  
not the identity. The identity automation/calender (per Peter example)  
is only needed to mark a resource as a non-IM resource.

So a clever Calendar application that also allows chat would probably  
still announce itself with a client/pc but would also set <feature> to  
support cal-dav-over-xmpp, or whatever.
