The following use case does not seem covered if you want to use non
anonymous or semi anonymous rooms (to get / display user data for

1. Enter a persistent room and say something bad.
2. Leave the room.
3. Someone enter the room and get the archived (contextual message).
As identity (JID) is disclosed only on presence packet and the user is
not available, the identity of the sender has been lost and cannot be used.

A possible option would be to specify that server should broadcast
identity on presence for unavailable contacts that are still referenced
in discussion history.

Any comments ?
