Ok, then how do you want to solve the use-case that you have thousands  
of users who should see you, but you're not interested in their  
presence? With you're aproach, they wouldn't see you - thus it would  
miserably fail for this use case.

If you DON'T filter presence based on which parts of the roster you  
received, you can STILL use privacy lists to achieve what you want -  
BOTH usecases would be possible this way.

But maybe I _WANT_ parts of it? I for example _WANT_ to see those in  
the group "Friends", but DONT'T want to see those in the group "Work"  
when I'm at home, but still want that they can send me messages if  
there's something important.
