So your requested suggestion for a name (see the other mail) was between
cocoon and lenya, because that channels exist?

Totally agree but that could be done as well in the suggested channel.
We can have bots to connect e.g. #lenya and #cocoon with
#cocoon-federation.

One can implement it with bots like I said before. From the
#cocoon-federation channel e.g. it is possible to send messages to
#lenya and as well follow their conversion. It would be a kind of meta
chat.

e.g. 
#cocoon-federation
bot lenya
bot cocoon
bot ...
...

#cocoon
bot cocoon-federation
...

Me add #cocoon-federation:
I want to write to #lenya: @lenya say my text
I want to subscribe to the lenya discussion: @lenya subscribe
...

In this case I can lurk on #cocoon/#lenya being on #cocoon-federation. I
do not see any dividing thing on that. The only thing that I do not know
whether that is possible but I guess so. BTW a new mailing list would do
nearly the same thing.
