I still have to do a bit of catch-up on the discussion on PEP, but I
don't like the implicit subscription to nodes using caps, that is
suggested in section 9 of XEP-0163. Certainly in the case of MUC, I am
afraid it will generate a lot of unused/unwanted notifications. I don't
think we have fully thought trough the interactions between MUC and
pubsub, but am willing to be proven wrong.
