As with per-protocol presence, I suspect what you really want is
per-contact-group presence. After all, many services might be used both for
work and for play (abicollab in particular might fall in this category).
On the other hand, some services might have autonomous mode - once you've
authorised your calendar to reply to free-time queries from a contact, it can
do that even when you're otherwise engaged. However, it can do that by
inserting itself higher in the filter chain.
