Something to note is this would not be negotiated using stream features, 
this would be negotiated using disco.

Also, with your protocol how does the sending server know if the list is 
populated yet and how does it know who is already in the list? It seems 
to me that this can easily get out of sync with neither side having any 
way of knowing if it is or not, this is something that needs to be 
resolved, i.e. having the mechanism for adding and removing people from 
the list actually send back a response indicating whether it was 
successful or not.
