Direct invitations have the benefit that the receiver can verify the
identity of the sender.
With mediated invites, a malicious MUC could trick a user into joining
(and exposing their full JID) by pretending to forward an invitation
from a known friend of the user.
Unfortunately, direct invitations don't automatically add the recipient
to the member list of access-restricted MUCs, so we have two
not-quite-solutions here for a seemingly trivial problem.
