A similar effect, with context-sensitive content in a form can be made using Dynamic Data Forms (XEP-0336).

I would like to have a dataform in a pubsub item with different access models
for the fields, for instance a "body" field would be public while a "email"
field would be only accessible to a white list of jid.
I think of 2 ways of achieving that with a standard PubSub service:
- having an intermediate service which open a private node on the pubsub
service, and which know how to handle the fields and permissions.
PROS: simple design
CONS: needs an extra layer, not generic
- having a way to "compose" data form in several nodes. The main node/item
would be a list of nodes with different access models (first node is white
list, second is open), the client try all nodes an gather the data it can
access to compose a final form.
PROS: working with current pubsub services, generic, we have fields history
CONS: more complicated design, difficult to search items, more requests
Maybe there is an other way I haven't thought about.
What do you think is the best way? Do you have better idea?
