Perhaps that is too strict of a definition of a server. Users don't care how muc is implemented just so long as their "xmpp server" supports it. So if you look at server more as an entity not as a single piece of software then it makes sense to mandate muc for intermediate server especially  since intermediate client requires muc.

We can't require that an XMPP server supports things like XEP-0045 
directly since that would mean legislating architecture, but we could 
require support either in the server itself or as an add-on component. 
It's worth discussing.
