I'm +0.5 to allowing <node at host> to inherit affiliation of <host>.

However, changing affiliations from being based on bare JIDs to being
based on full JIDs seems pretty significant. What's the rationale? How
useful is this?

This requires some thinking, and perhaps testing to determine interop
issues. I'll also need to review our code to determine how significant
a change this would be in Prosody's MUC implementation.

This may also affect other XEPs (distributed MUC, etc). I haven't checked yet.
