Well, here's my "thing". I've not got back to the authors, I'm afraid  
- whenever I've had the time I've not seen them online, and I've code  
freezes and other nightmares.

On PubSub chaining, I think it's okay, although I suspect unsuitable  
for real repeaters - I think this model is right for aggregation, but  
not terribly interesting for the simple case. I've another design for  
shadowing entire services, both MUC and PubSub, that I really need  
the time to finish off.

On PubSub queueing, I'm concerned that this is entirely the wrong  
model. In particular, I'm wondering what happens when a naïve pubsub  
client (or a repeater, like above) subscribed with the default  
options, expecting one behaviour and discovering another entirely. I  
suspect - but I'm really not sure - that it might need to be an  
entirely distinct interface.
