It's simply being moved from XEP-0045 to a standalone spec (perhaps,
i.e., if people still think it's useful).

In order to be useful, the room ID would need to be reserved for some
period of time, no?

By the way, I think this feature needs to be deprecated. I submitted
this ProtoXEP only to foster discussion on this list (previous
discussion happened on the muc at xmpp.org list).
