Not without modifying the code. When is it doing this? At start?

Outbound registrations are separate from endpoints, endpoints aren't 
retrieved as a result of it. As for endpoints not really. The sorcery 
layer (and realtime itself) doesn't allow you to specify constraints to 
that degree, only if a field is a specific value. In the case of qualify 
it's not off or on.

I'm sure others would welcome this addition as well.
