Well Section 7.9 of XEP-0045 says:

   a service MAY ignore or reject messages that do not have a
   type of "groupchat"

So that would seem to allow the component to ignore or reject the 
message, but I think that rule was intended to disallow messages of type 
"normal" or "chat" or "headline", not to break error handling.
