During yesterday evening we talked about the jep in both jabber at c.j.o
and jdev at c.j.o . The talks showed us that we actually agree with it,
sort of. 

compare these: 
#channel%jabber.eu.openprojects.net at irc.jabber.org/username
oubliette.dungeon.darkcastle at conference.jabber.org/username

I'd say a discussion about hierarchies or not is moot. The standard
naming convention already allows it. 

Besides, to an old server the dot-rooms would be put next to the other
rooms in the row. 

JEP-0045 could be said to be about how to talk to different chat
systems, instead of just a room. 

Therefore we would all address the conference system even though we
think we're sending it to a room. The separation of rooms from
conference is simply not necessary.

So the block for us all was the word "room"...
