[BA] Consider a scenario in which an XMPP MUC room is used to share
information between police, medical and fire departments relating to an
emergency call (perhaps one from a disabled user utilizing XEP-0301).

You would not want an emergency caller to share an MUC room with other
callers, so that a room with a unique name would need to be created.
