In some situations, it's possible that an entity may know about its 
items. One example is this:

The MUC service is responsible for all those rooms (at least in most 
implementations). This is quite different from a server providing 
information about all its components.

Perhaps there's a rough distinction here between a domain trying to 
provide information about its subdomains and a subdomain providing 
information about its rooms, nodes, etc.?

It's worth thinking about further...
