This can be a client choice.   The client could show JID, or MIX provided Nick, or a user-assigned Nick for the participant.   MIX is not mandating what gets shown.


I actually think it should have an opinion on what the client shows, at ;least when MIX is being used for "chatrooms".


Otherwise there's a risk that different clients end up having such radically different user interfaces that interoperability is hampered at the user level.


I have vague recollections of this being a problem in other cases - didn't Georg do some work on common terminology and suchlike?

Having MIX mandate what is shown or not show in a client UI is drifting into very dangerous territory.
