So the subscriber is <node at host/resource>? If so, then it seems correct
for Idavoll to refuse access. If the subscriber is node at host, then it is
probably right to allow access from any resource. (It's always a bit
dangerous to make assumptions about what an entity is based on the JID,
e.g., node at host could be jdev at conference.jabber.org, I suppose.)

Well, let's clarify that, then! :-)

Hmm. Is that kind of special-casing a problem in the code?

It does seem reasonable that owners and publishers would be allowed to
get items, but of course they could simply subscribe, too.
