[Standards-JIG] Broken mu-conference password invites?

I'm resending this to this list because of some recent email on jdev. 
For the record, I am aware of how to fix mu-conference to do the right 
thing, that's not my issue. My issue is that the spec and the 
"reference" implementation disagree, and I'm not best sure how this 
needs to get fix.



jabber.org (mu-conference) seems to be sending the room invite stanza 
incorrectly, it is setting the <password> element as a child of the <invite> 
element as opposed to as a child of the <x 
xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#user'> which according to my reading of 
the spec it should be doing. I noticed this after people at work were having 
problems on our server (ejabberd) when I went to try to fix the code in our 
client I noticed it broke jabber.org. Looking for consensus as to who is wrong 
and what (if anything) will happen from here.



A couple side notes:

Is there a reason that <password> and <decline> are children of the <x> element 
but <continue> is a child of <invite>?

And I don't really know how to read schemas but is the schema correct for how 
the <continue> element is used/placed? It would seem it should be under 
'invite' not under 'item'.
