Hey guys,

Some minor points on this proposal, as someone who only has an amateur 
in XMPP:

- This looks *a lot* like what mailing-lists-in-XMPP would be:
  participants become participants only when an admin/owner (or someone
  already inside) gets them in, you can just assume participants are always
  reachable, send your message, and let the XMPP machinery do the
  buffering, you remain a participant until someone (or you) manually
  removes you,... Main difference is that the list of participants is
  public to those who are inside. Perhaps a note about this would be
  useful for those who'd like to slowly replace SMTP with XMPP.

- § 4.5 Talks about blocking, but example 16 doesn't deal with blocking

- § 4.5.3 "In order to block a " room -> user
