In MUC, the roles (owner, admin, moderator...) are based in the Jabber
ID, not in the nickname.

If 'bob at example.org' is owner of the chatroom 'test', and another
person joins the room with nick 'bob', there is no problem: only
bob at example.org has the privileges of owner.

Another topic: any user can register a nick in the MUC service.
For example, bob at example.org can register the nick 'bob', in the MUC
service. This way, only him can use that nick in the chatrooms.
