The beauty of mapping MUC rooms to nodes is that from the presence
distribution point of view, there is nothing special in MUC room. It's
just another entity you send presence to.

So you should use any means available in the invisibility XEP you use,
to become selectively visible to some contacts. These same means can be
used to stay active in selected MUC rooms.
