As I understand this MUC2 should not rely replace the current MUC but
provide an alternative. Someone who needs the full IRC-like feature set
(large groups mostly with people you don't know personally) can still use
MUC1. Therefore we shouldn't be afraid to really limit the feature set of
MUC2 to something that a majority of people will actually use.

Yes. Plus that gives us the ability to not have private messages which are
always a mess (carbons) - not sure if this is what you meant by addressing
And we can do proper PEP for avatars and other stuff.
