Well, to address Bob's requirement the uber-message sent from pubsub.com
to jabber.org for all his mythical subscribers there would also need to
include pubsub SubIDs. So conceptually it would need to look like this:

<message from='pubsub.com' to='jabber.org'>
    <address to='sub1 at jabber.org' subid='foo'>
    ... lots more addresses here! ...
    ... pubsub-event-with-payload-here ...

But right now there's no way to include the SubIDs or other info on a
per-address basis, unless we put a SHIM header in each <address/>
element (possible, I suppose, but potentially icky).
