Using this removes the need for semi-anonymous channels
and proxy JIDs, which will simplify the MIX spec a lot. It shifts the
decision about whether or not a user is
anonymous from the MIX service to the user since they can decide
whether or not to use a burner JID before joining any channels
(although the MIX service would still be able to enforce that a room
be anonymous by only allowing in JIDs issued by its own burner JID
