I would prefer pubsub to PEP here : this does not really feel like a 
solution which can be modelled on pep.
You are not publishing anything which is common across all resources of 
a node - different sessions of a node would want to publish different 
files , etc.
What about an iq to a JID to retrieve it's file sharing pubsub channel , 
and then subscribe to it ?
