I think in a purely distributed chat, you won't be able to establish roles like a group owner.
On the technical side every peer could still forward it's messages.

It is still possible to deny certain requests from joining or to kick specific peers by reopening the group under a different key.
But it is required to ask for consensus, otherwise it won't work.

What do you think about creating a directly democratic state protocol?
