Please note that contact requests (presence subscription requests) do 
get lost, too (VYSPER-9). Don't know if this can easily be covered at 
the same time.

Here are some more general hints about offline message handling. There 
are (at least) two XMPP extensions covering this topic (beyond the 
general terms of RFC 3920 + 3921):

http://xmpp.org/internet-drafts/draft-saintandre-rfc3921bis-02.html - 
8.1 Inbound Stanzas
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0013.html - Flexible Offline Message 
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0160.html - Best Practices for Handling 
Offline Messages

Sounds good as a first approach. This would be covered under 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VYSPER-180 already.

I don't think this hook exists already.

Yes, sounds about right. I'd go for
