You could drop groupchat and use SHIM (JEP-0131) to indicate there are  
multiple recipients to a message. That would require clients to implement  
parts of SHIM though, and to be smart about it when they write a reply to  
a message or start their own mini-conferences. (they should add their own  
SHIM headers, particulary when they do the inviting themselves).
