I think this is a good idea.  But you would want MOTDs (or MsOTD?) to
either be private messages, or a message in the MUC that specifically
is not logged in the history.  I would hate to have a 3 paragraph
README echoed a few times to new entrants to the room.  But having
this README as something standardized in the protocol would allow
people to more clearly communicate those social conventions you are
talking about.  And as such, may alleviate the "JEP-bloat" you seem to
be worried about, Peter.
