Yes, I was thinking about this too. But the protocol would need to be very
compact to avoid triggering karma. I was thinking of something very simple
like this:

<iq from='crone1 at shakespeare.lit/desktop'
    to='darkcave at macbeth.shakespeare.lit'
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#owner'>
    <x xmlns='jabber:x:data' type='submit'/>
      <item from='hecate at shakespeare.lit'>Thrice the brinded cat hath
      <item from='crone1 at shakespeare.lit'>Thrice and once the hedge-pig
      <item from='hecate at shakespeare.lit'>Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis

Note that there are no time stamps, and the 'from' attributes are Bare JIDs
(not Room JIDs).
