Hmm, I kinda like that idea. If everything is a role and we define the
roles clearly enough, then when someone loses a role we can "decrement"
them down to the next role by sending new presence for them including the
role they've descended to (insert Dante reference here).


<role level='owner'/> == God (at least in this room)

<role level='admin'/> == demi-god, has special powers

<role level='participant'/> == has voice ("speaker"?)

<role level='auditor'/> == pleb with no voice in moderated room

Naturally we could define other levels, as IRC does, but these seem to
address most of our requirements. Thoughts?
