Isn't that handled by the existing text in Section 16.4?

    If an occupant wants to send an IQ stanza to another user in a
    non-anonymous room, the sender SHOULD send the request directly to
    the recipient's bare JID or full JID, rather than attempting to send
    the request through the room (i.e., via the recipient's room JID).
