Here's some:
  * Live search results (PubSub.com have been doing this for ages now, right?)
  * Push replacement for HTTP+Atom
  * Weather indication

So, we have our killer apps, but that doesn't seem to be making the clients 
implement any of them.

(Incidentally, a lot of the killer apps for PubSub wouldn't even fit into what 
you would consider a Jabber client in the first place.  PubSub.com's feed 
thingy sits in a browser sidebar, it doesn't let you chat but it's still a 
Jabber client, technically.)
