There are several commercial implementations (from JINC and PubSub, 
etc.) as well as the open-source Idavoll component and pubsub 
functionality in the ejabberd server. So it exists today, but not many 
client developers have added support yet because there are not a lot of 
services available. 

Possible services include news/RSS/Atom feeds (that's basically the 
service offered by PubSub.com), weather updates, earthquake/tsunami 
alerts (the PubSub.com folks offer that as well), sports scores, stock 
market tickers, geolocation information and other "extended presence" 
data (see JEP-0119), and any other data that changes fairly often.
