I stumbled upon an additional problem for migrating iq:private to PEP.

AFAICT, there is no way to specify in one configuration request that
you want to be the only person subscribed to this node. The flow is
'configure node with whitelist access' -> 'add yourself to whitelist'.
This chain is more complicated than iq:private, even with

What is the right way around this problem? Add the possibility to
provide a whitelist at configure time (i was expecting this to be
possible in XEP-0060, but it isn't). Add to PEP the specification that
you always receive events from your own PEP nodes (if you advertise
support in your caps)?
