Not necessarily. If a user changes status and sends a packet to the server, 
it seems possible that the server might just forward that packet on to all 
"watchers" that have that user on their buddy list without actually trying 
to re-create or validate the packet. Obviously the FLAP sequence number 
would need to be changed for each destination, but the main body of the 
packet could be left as is. At least that's my theory.
