Yes sorry, I've not been clear or correct, but I think I know what I 
meant. ;-)

AFAICT, As PEP stands we've only got persistance for a single publish 
event (payload) per node (although, as you pointed out, an owner can 
publish multiple items at once).

If you haven't got persistance for the full list of items (whenever they 
were published) then you can't do XEP-0189 etc. nicely.

This could be solved by adding 'persist_items' to the PEP "MUST" list.
