JSJaC has built in functions (pause/resume) for this. The behavior of which should indeed be achievable manually by using strophe's attach method somewhat (though you won't be able to restore internal state of queues for stanzas for example).

As already pointed out somewhat you'll lose the ability to logout 'onunload' which means that in case the chat window is intentionally closed you're users remain online for others until the BOSH session actually times out. So this probably will require you some tradeoff.

As to my knowledge there are no working solutions in public how to deal with this situation from a server side of view (like sharing sessions).
