A collection node can have child nodes (which may be collection nodes or
leaf nodes). A leaf node can have items only.

See Ralph's earlier message about graphs.

It sure seems that way.

It sure seems that way.

It is specified. Either:

1. Create the node and associate it with a collection


2. Modify the node configuration to specify that it is associated with
one or more collection nodes.

I have no idea how ejabberd has implemented this. Someone from the
ejabberd team can clarify this for you.

A vCard can be stored without a reserved NodeID range -- why would that
be necessary?
