Remark that receivers might not like such behaviour of a client.

E.g., it can cost them money if they have a Jabber client running on their 
mobile phone (low priority) and at the same time a Jabber client on their 
desktop client (higher priority). Both of the clients have the presence 
online. Such a user will probably want to receive messages *only* on his 
desktop computer as it otherwise will require him some more expensive 
GPRS/UMTS bandwidth.
