Removing the one-to-one mapping introduces some problems again that
made us introduce PEP in the first place. How is a client supposed to
determine to what node it should send node information ? If every
client starts making his own nodes, won't there be a large resource
overhead ? What happens with notifications: does the service send
'last published tune' events from all your nodes, or does it select a
node ? If it selects a node, how does it select one ? What if one
resource decides to publish http://jabber.org/protocol/tune
information to the 'tune' node, and another resource decides to
publish http://myserver.com/tune information to that same node, won't
that conflict ?

I realize that hardcoding the namespace in the pubsub node might not
be in line with the pubsub spec, but i'm affraid we will be putting
burden on the client again (i.e. choosing or finding out a node name
to publish to). What is wrong with a one-to-one mapping ? Isn't
multiple items per node enough to solve the issues that made you
decide to go one-to-many again ?
