Well, no, not just bots. In a typical chat client, you have a list of  
users in the channel and would like to click on them, then activate  
"kick" from some list/some button/etc and don't have to fill out some  
form for that.
Generally, being able to specify a target or a list of targets is a  
common thing for MUC commands and should be standardized for all of  
them.
