The ideas in your draft seem mostly reasonable to me.  For better or
for worse we try to avoid surfacing protocol to the user by default.
And I worry that having lots of sorting options for the list of
buddies will make the implementation quite complex... it might make
sense to start off with a more limited set of features and get
something working, keeping in mind that you'll want to extend the
functionality later.
