I changed my mind, use roomconfig_enablemam or whatever.

Guess XEP-0045 is fine, it already has a pubsub specific config uption, so
why not MAM too.
Further things missing in this change though are:
- possibly adding a status code for this, there is one for public logging
after all ( 7.2.13 Room Logging ), but this is probably not a requirement
- a reference to this option in section 13.3 Privacy, it sounds worthy
enough to mention there

If that's done i'm +1 for the change.
