Yes. But let's keep your example on.

Sally: Help.  [multicasted to all 3]
Joe: Please describe your problem.  [to Sally]
Sally: I cannot do XXX.  [multicasted to all 3]
Jeff: Hi Sally. Please describe your problem.  [to Sally]
Sally: I already did it.  [multicasted to all 3]
Joe: Oh fine. So we're done here?  [to Sally]
Jeff: When?  [to Sally]
Sally: ??? confused

The chatwindow full resource binding was discouraged and clients are
expected to send messages to bare JIDs now. So the described situation
is going to happen.
The helpdesk protocol is invented and implemented with servers and
should be used instead of this multicast idea.
And for normal usage, the best practices XEP should be created.
