I wonder if greylisting could help.  I almost never receive incoming
jabber messages from people that I don't already have on a roster.  So a
delay of 30m would be ok for new presence requests.  But I realize that
kind of breaks the I in IM.

Another thought is an IP-address-based RBL, like the ones used for spam.
