[Standards] Threaded chats

Here's another idea for how a UI for XEP-0201 in rooms might work:

All the messages in the room could have different background colours 
depending on which thread they belong to.

The background of the user's text input field has the colour of the 
thread they are currently replying to. They can change the colour (and 
the thread) of the input field at any time simply by (double?) clicking 
on one of the messages in the discussion (or selecting from a context menu).

Note this is designed for quick-fire informal threads - so there is no 
need to type a thread name.
