You can achieve all of these without coin.. You can just have a
"special" conf call number that everyone calls and does a conf call.
This is trivial to do with Freeswitch, Asterisk, etc.. And this is the
way the SIP world works (also the PSTN world).

I understand that at the XMPP Summit in Brusssels (that I didn't
attend), there was a wide consensus that Coin was the wrong approach for

It is definitely possible to cleanly use MUCs and have server-side
mixing if you want more features in your conference.
