That’s not optional. That’s specifying how the legacy protocol joined rooms. It’s not the MUC protocol (and comes with assorted issues that doing MUC avoids). But even in the pre-MUC case it’s not true, because clients used directed presence to join rooms, not a presence subscription. So they had to make the extra explicit step of sending the presence to each room.
