We do not fundamentally need Nicks to be in MIX-CORE.    

You can display participants by use of the JID.     

My sense is that it is handy to have Nicks associated with channel participants, to give a more compact display.  Perhaps this reflects the UIs I'm used to.   It feels a pretty basic capability to me.   This is why it remained in MIX-CORE.   

However,  I could move it out into a new MIX-NICK.   What do people think?
