Actually, you can already configure MUC rooms to not broadcast presence for
specific roles: muc#roomconfig_presencebroadcast


You can possibly achieve what you need by limiting presence broadcast to
"moderators". In specific implementations, that list of options could
presumably handle different restriction to presence broadcast (like self
for example).
Own user presence is still broadcasted to self in all cases to acknowledge

I hope this helps,
