for users there is an ident (kind of @jsmith-1234:example.com)
for rooms there is both an internal ident (!Ab3RfV...:example.com) and a ship ident (#some-theme:example.com)
no idea how to get a ship ident
:o got a ship ident working :)

@awb715 the room ident, looks like #some-theme:example.com
you can assign one to a room in Riot (room owner settings ==> addresses)
Created a testroom, at #hunky-ice-4170:matrix.org unpublished vvvv
