Ok, here goes for my comments:

The header of Example 13 is wrong.

The JEP suggest the possibility to be notified of deleted items. How would
this take form? Do they get a <message/> with a child in the
'http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub#delete' namespace?
Of course this is just an example. How would applications have to handle
extensions like this?

Although it is not explicitely in the JEP, Table 1 suggests that for
persistent items, the publisher should be remembered to be able to
verify if that publisher is allowed to delete an item.

That said, how would this authorization work when different publishers
have published to the same node id AND item id, and those items
are all accumulated in a list (example 3 in 7.3)? Who can delete
the whole item?

Does a 'purge' induce item deletion notifications being send?

Reminder: subscription configuration.
