Yes this is a great feature of the pubsub node. There is a configuration on 
both side. On the publishing side, the publisher/creator configure the 
default options of the node. On the subscriber side, you can either accept 
default options or choose your own (so if you do not want the payload, but 
just a notification for instance; or even if you don't want any notification 
at all, just subscribing to a service without being pinged, etc.).

That's a nice idea. This way you can subscribe without giving your real jid 
(the redirection is managed by your trusted server). And if the service 
tries to use a jid a bad way, it may enable to trace which pubsub service it 
was (if the service had generated some specific jid for each subscription 
for instance?).
