One point against having MUC as a requirement is that MUC can be
federated out. users on hawkesnest.net can access MUC at
conference.jabber.org. So the implemented services of hawkesnest.net
arguably include MUC, regardless of whether it's a part of that server.
This is distinct from a mere plugin like starttls.
