Maybe some other idea. Note that I'm no coder nor protocol guru. What 
about having a protocol that allows to attach "subrosters" to the main 
roster. So, these subrosters can be embedded in the main roster. The 
main roster then has to give permision for any subroster to be embedded. 
In this way the transports can handle their own roster. Other advantage: 
maybe no cryptic JIDs needed.

Mvg, Sander Devrieze.
