Somewhat similar but the sipub doesn't offer any streams.
Instead it has a xmpp specifying the sipub id attribute.
It says: "From that a client could then use the protocol defined in SI-PUB to retrieve the image."
but doesn't say how. 
Anyhow, some kind of xmpp uri that references a sipub id would be a great idea.
Perhaps this could initiate a "normal" si/filetransfer. Details need to be thought out.
