Such structure is supported by today's jabber protocol (this can be
done using disco or browse), but it isn't supported by any
existing groupchat/conference implementation (existing clients should
have no problem with this). But modification to eg. mu-conference
component would be versy easy.

Other solution would be to use roster with hierarchy extension (defined
by some JEP) to store channel list - this could be implemented on the
client side only.
