The trick is... renaming channels is hard, especially when 300 people
lurk in one and have their setups pointing to them. I'm not sure the
value of averaging lurking across meeting rooms outweighs the
inconvenience renaming creates for existing users.

There are already conflicts as people pick times that appear to be free
but are actually used every other week... so a third room is definitely
wanted. We can go and create #openstack-meeting3 (other suggestions
welcome) and then discuss a consistent naming scheme and/or if renaming
is such a good idea.
