I don't know. I figured I'd write up the idea so that some enterprising

Presence good. We've got it, why not use it?

I don't think that's compelling, it's just a byproduct of sharing 
presence. But enabling the room to know when the user is offline may be 
more useful (though we already have that via directed presence).

It's easier to deploy a new version of a MUC component than to deploy 
thousands of new clients.
