Yes and no. 

I dont know if MUC removes resources on error. Question to the
developer: does it?

Godd if it doesm but not enought. There are clients which do not answer
to my jabber:iq:version. No response, no error. The same would happen to
MUC if MUC would ask. So relying on the error is not enough. Moreover:
there is message-traffic in the room. The messages are also routed to
these dead resources. But they are not removed. So I guess they don't
generate errors. They probably perish like my jabber:iq:version.
