For example:

MUC room configuration has become a lengthy process. A friendly client
might offer to remember its user's preferences after the first
configuration. The user's default values would often be different and
more appropriate than the ones offered by the server.

So perhaps even a RECOMMENDED would be unhelpful here? Can we delete
this restriction completely?
