	Jabber provides quite a number of mechanisms for handling
"request-response" services. There is no need to define yet another way to
fetch data. Additionally, I think it is particularly inappropriate to
attempt to handle "get" as part of a pubsub protocol since the operations
and interaction patterns are completely different at their cores.
	While the pubsub protocol should *not* be modified to support GET
operations, there is no reason why an implemented service can't support both
pubsub and get. Such a service would simply support both the JEP-0060 pubsub
protocols as well as the GET protocols of some other extension.
