XEP-0060 currently says that if you want to create a pubsub node with
the default configuration, you MUST include an empty <configure/>
element in the node creation request, for example:

<iq type='set'
    from='hamlet at denmark.lit/elsinore'
    <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>
      <create node='princely_musings'/>

Ralph Meijer pinged me the other day and suggest that the intention here
was SHOULD, not MUST. What do people think?
