Ah. This clarifies things. So the messages sent by the PubSub Server
MUST NOT use the message routing rules defined by XMPP. 

Have the message routing rules for PubSub been explicitly defined

Should messages be stored offline if there isn't an exact match? Should
messages be send to negative priority users?

The JEP says (as I read it) that I must implement them. 

JEP 60, 8.1.5: "Subscription requests to a node MUST contain a 'jid'
attribute, which enables the subscriber to specify either a bare JID or
a specific resource which should be used as the subscribed Jabber ID.
