Ah, sure. I meant you are indeed (aiming to be) compliant to JEP-0060 as a
protocol, but that the behaviour is taylored to your specific use. You
explained that nicely by the way, and I think this is how the JEP should
be used.

I my view, generic pubsub services will be one part of the spectrum, mainly
for deployment alongside public Jabber servers. They'd offer a way create
nodes for applications like User Mood, Avatars, etc.

On the other end there should (and will) be application specific
implementations (like pubsub.com, lli.jabberstudio.org, and a future version of
