I don't like to "require" a login in pubsub.com system to use the
technology, since pubsub.com doesn't do S2S. I'm still waiting the XMPP
Atom "dawn". And current weather reporting systems, there are a lot in
XMPP space, are not providing pubsub capabilities, as far as I know.

So the technology is here and the "ideas" are floating around, but there
is no STILL killer app visible and useable to users.

I agree, of course. And now that we have a JEP for service negotiation
by resource (for the VOIP thing), we can see soon a pletora of XMPP
"agents" around our desktops. The issue is... I don't have those agents
yet, because I can't still connect them to services I would like.
