Hi Dan,

Thanks for putting this together. Over in the Jabber world, we're
definitely interested in describing chatrooms (they're just another node
on the network) so that we could auto-invite you to rooms that might
align with your defined interests. Using FOAF for all this would make it
easy, I think. We have a general service discovery protocol [1] that
could be extended to include FOAF information that describe chatrooms
(which are defined in our multi-user chat protocol [2]).

The specifics of your example look good, and I'll try to think of more
data we might want to include as well.
