It's a very good idea, and one we're very interested in (for pubsub,
MUC, and other things too). It was discussed at the summit and (I
think) Joe and Ralph were to work on a spec.

The current system is very inflexible, and there are lots of fun
things that could be done with a unified affiliation protocol (more
fun is always good).
