I'm not sure that I understand your questions -- did you ever receive
answers to these? You want to send messages directly to the pubsub node?
The JEP specifies how publication happens -- you send an IQ directly to
the pubsub service but specify a particular node. So the address of the
node (pubsub.example.com/ThisNode vs. pubsub.example.com plus a node of
ThisNode) doesn't affect publication.
