MUC Mediated vs Direct Invite bug?

This is regarding Example/Listing 57 of the MUC XEP (XEP-0045).

When a server forwards a mediated invite to a destination JID, the invite according to the XEP looks like this;





Hey Hecate, this is the place for all good witches!


cauldronburn

But Openfire (3.8.2) send the following;

<message
 from='coven@chat.shakespeare.lit'
 id='nzd143v8'
 to='hecate@shakespeare.lit'>
 <x xmlns='[http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#user](http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#user)'>
 <invite from='crone1@shakespeare.lit/desktop'>
 <reason>
         Hey Hecate, this is the place for all good witches!
 </reason>
 </invite>
 <password>cauldronburn</password>
 </x>   <x xmlns="jabber:x:conference" jid="coven@chat.shakespeare.lit'"/>
 </message>

The text highlighted in red appears to be surplus to requirement. I thought the presence of ‘**jabber:x:conference’ **was meant for Direct invites (XEP 0249) as opposed to those that are mediated. I was wondering if there was a particular reason for this extra line.

Many thanks for you time.
