You're welcome to help that draft to move forward: it mainly needs a trial
implementation in a connection manager, I think.
(I'd suggest telepathy-gabble.)

However, that's an API to block individual "bad" contacts. Setting a general
policy for "everyone not on your contact list" is a different draft,
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24908>. It's not clear to me
which one you want.

(Depending on the protocol, it might be the case that only one of those two
possibilities can ever be supported; I believe XMPP and MSN are examples of
protocols where either or both can happen.)
