That should be achieved by other means IMO. For example, you could  
only retrieve the roster group you are interested in and use a privacy  
list so that only this roster group receives your presence. The  
privacy list could also block incoming presences.

No, what I mean is simply not retrieving the whole roster. For  
example, I could have a group "Bots" that I'm not interested in, but  
which need to see my status. So why retrieve them as part of the  
roster then?

I think retrieving only a part of the roster should not change  
anything regarding presence.
