I think this is basically good to merge as a draft, with or without the changes

"Note that if non-empty, this property..." might be clearer?

> Subject — (ssx)

This seems like a namespace grab, could we make it a type called Room_Subject?
That'd become TP_STRUCT_TYPE_ROOM_SUBJECT in telepathy-glib or Tp::RoomSubject
in telepathy-qt4. The property can stay as Subject though.

It might be worth saying explicitly that the Subject should be ("", "", 0) in
protocols that don't have subjects (MSN?).


- Subject should have a tp:rationale saying it replaces the subject,
subject-contact and subject-timestamp Telepathy.Properties of Text channels

- Those Telepathy.Properties should cross-reference to Chan.I.Room.Subject

- Chan.T.RoomList.GotRooms should gain a "room-id" key in its a{sv}, whose
value is defined to be the Chan.I.Room.RoomID, with a link

- Either Chan.T.RoomList.GotRooms should gain a "server" key for completeness,
or the text should say that clients may assume that the Chan.I.Room.Server is
the same as the Chan.T.RoomList.Server

- Chan.T.RoomList.GotRooms' "subject" a{sv} key should link to
