Well, It's unfortunate, because XEP-0191 doesn't cover the following case
I'd consider important: it doesn't allow me to block all messages from
unknown contacts (contacts not in my roster). Recently, I received a
fair amount of
spam from random JIDs on public XMPP servers, so I had to block all
unknown JIDs. Is there any way to do that without privacy lists?
