[jdev] Question about JEP-0084 (avatars)

The process flow for JEP-0084 shows a client creating both a metadata and
data node, and then publishing their avatar to the data node. Optionally,
they can also publish to an HTTP URL.

My question: is there any reason why a client couldn't skip the data node
and *only* publish to the HTTP URL? If so, is it even necessary to create
the data node if nothing gets published to it? I want to avoid taxing XMPP
server resources by offloading the avatar storage to a seperate web server,
and I'm wondering if this is a viable alternative.
