Hi !
In http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0045.html#invite it's written that when 
the MUC room send the invite to the invitee, the value of the from address of 
the <invite/> element must be the bare JID of the invitor or his room JID.

This cause problems when the invitee declines this invitation. He will send 
back a <decline/> with the to set to the bare JID. But how is the muc 
implementation suppose to forward the decline message, when it only has the 
bare JID of the person ? When this user is only once in the room, there is no 
problems, but when he is connected more than once, then it's hard to know 
which one send the invite.

I don't understand why a bare JID is needed here, a full JID would be better.
