Thanks Sam.

This element is NOT going to be called <mix/>.

I'm happy to call it something other than <mix-info-request/> although I
think this is a fine choice

Just to join in the bike shed, <roster xmlns="urn:xmpp:mix:roster:0"/>, and
place the item marker in the same namespace. In both cases, it feels as if
these ought to stabilize quickly, and we may as well take advantage of this.
