	It occurs to me, also, that even in the “managed_entity” type, the component may need to know who’s sending presence, because it may handling presence in multiple roles, and so even there, it makes sense to have the stanzas use XEP-0297.

This wouldn’t affect the semantics when the privilege is of type “managed_entity”, but when it’s “roster” it’s important to know when using directed presence.
