An alternative would be to use JEP-0059 syntax directly...

<iq type='get'
    from='francisco at denmark.lit/barracks'
    to='pubsub.shakespeare.lit'
    id='items2'>
  <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>
    <items node='princely_musings'>
      <set xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/rsm'>
        <max>10</max>
        <start>1</start>
      </set>
    </items>
  </pubsub>
</iq>

(receive first set of results)

<iq type='get'
    from='francisco at denmark.lit/barracks'
    to='pubsub.shakespeare.lit'
    id='items2'>
  <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>
    <items node='princely_musings'>
      <set xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/rsm'>
        <max>10</max>
        <start>11</start>
      </set>
    </items>
  </pubsub>
</iq>

(receive second set of results)

Etc.
