Yes I had in mind to stay on the same domain.

I wanted to have fancyname at muc and serious-business at muc, pointing to
the same room.

For this particular use case an alias might be best, The component knows
what other has joined what JID and speaks to them via this JID. I would
also be ok with a redirect though, having the component state "business
happens _there_".

Redirect implies client support I assume, but that would also allow for
redirects to other components.
