No, I just realized we really need two separate things here:

1) a boolean flag that says whether we want this account to connect 
automatically when its connectivity requirements are met.

2) presence+message to be set when connecting as a result of some 
implicit need (such as the just mentioned case of connectivity becoming 
available, or a channel request on an offline account).
