I'm not quite following why it's not ok to send an iq to your own server?

The XEP says that privacy lists block *incoming* IQs (that is,
'incoming' from the point of view of the client, so from other
entities on the network than your client). It should be ok to send IQ
requests to anywhere you like. If your server blocks IQs you are
sending, something sounds wrong with that server (as this is about
*outgoing* IQs). And it's even worse if it's blocking outgoing IQs to
the server *itself* (like disco#info).

cheers,
Remko
