should store data. This I fundamentally disagree with. Data storage is
something that I believe should be tackled as a separate
JEP/implementation in JAbber, as there is so much potential for the use
of data storage through out the Jabber world. Pubsub should deal with
the subscription to information/data and its changes, not the actual
management of the data itself.

Amen. You said it better than I did.
