How would that work, for example, for discovering the microblog node that a
jid uses? Would a client then a form a second query that would return the
location of the microblog node?

I think it would be helpful to have the "well known" pubsub nodes registered
(like http://xmpp.org/registrar/nodes.html) and I can then do a query after
I have discovered the pubsub service, using your method above, like:

<iq type='set'
    from='francisco at denmark.lit/barracks'
  <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>
        jid='francisco at denmark.lit'/>
