i think using a separate JID (like room at gc/admin) to do the
administrative tasks. this way the administration protocol could be
defined outside of the groupchat protocol itself. this way we would
allow people to create conference servers without the ability kick and
ban which would still follow the spec.

the conference server could exploit the presence sent to the admin and
it could attach a <x/> message to the presence noting that the user can
infact control this resource.
