Yup. In the MSN protocol all conversation map to a switchboard session. It 
corresponds directly to a room in Jabber MUC, or IRC. When you double-click 
on a contact in the MSN client, it joins a new room, then invites that 
person. Anybody in the room can at any time invite other people to the room 
(annoying I think, that you can be moved from a private to public place 
without permission).

I want to make sure that a <message to="user%hotmail.com at msn.host.com"/> only 
ever gets sent to that one contact.
