 - 4.1, note #3 mentions access models advertised via disco. We removed
   that from JEP-0060 and here one should just fetch the default config

 - The SHIM 'replyto' field is used for conveying the origin of the
   message. How does this relate to pubsub proxies of foreign nodes

   208 in JEP-0060 seems to have it there. I'm not sure what is good
   form now.

 - The reply to a <subscribe/> is not examined, assuming that in the PEP
