There's no way we could have designed this correctly in Telepathy

and IRC).

Just to illustrate Simon's point further - Matrix doesn't currently have a first-class concept for 1:1 conversations; instead a 1:1 conversation is just a room which happens to have two people in it (although we do track whether the intent for that room is to use it for DMing a given user). The reason is in part because it's incredibly common and useful to be able to invite 3rd parties into 1:1s - especially bots or assistants (human or machine)... and also to keep the API simpler and less special-casey.
