If the room is unmoderated then the visitor role is pretty much useless,
but I would probably expect the affiliation to be changed and then that
occupant's role to what is specified in the request, assuming the role
change is valid for that affiliation.
I also don't see a possible UI for this instance either. Even with the
UI I made for changing roles and affiliations, with my liberal
interpretation of MUC, users can only change a role OR an affiliation.
Never both in the same request. This case would most likely only be
encountered when a user, like you, is feeding it into an XML console.

Setting default roles should be left to the room's configure form and
what's specified in the JEP IMO.
