Yes, this is exactly what I was saying.
If an application requires a specific feature on a pubsub server, it should do a
disco#info and check the <feature> elements. Once these are registered, it's all
machine readable. Combined with the JEP-68 field standardization, it allows
machines to also pre-configure nodes, etc.

The obvious initial choices as has been pointed out are:
- Hierarchy seperator
- Allow items to be over-written?
- etc..
