At XMPP Summit 6 we talked about defining a method to "decloak" for
purposes of initiating a session. One approach might be for the
initiator to send directed presence to the responder's bare JID with a
special annotation; this notification would be delivered to all of the
responder's resources, and if a resource replies with directed presence
(including the decloak notation) then the initiator knows that it can
start a session with that resource. Another approach would be to use
message stanzas (perhaps of type headline). If people are still
interested in this, I could write up a short proposal about it.
