[Standards] RFC vs privacy lists

I have a problem with privacy list on an ejabberd server, and developers
are right to say there is a problem in the standards:
Let's say I configure a list to block all IQ for jid with
subscription=none (nice anti-spam rule).
Now I don't get any iq answer to, let's say, disco#info on my server.
That's normal because RFC  says that "Privacy lists MUST be the first
delivery rule applied by a server, superseding ..."
But RFC also says that every IQ MUST have an answer...
In this situation Gajim cannot connect to the server because it waits
for the disco#info answer to know server features.
In this situation, prosody return a service-unavailable iq error.
So what's the best solution and could we improve RFC about that?
