Item is not broadcasted only when publishing. The last item is saved and
sent again when - for example - new subscriber becomes online.
Now, if node configuration is changed after publishing (just changed, by
using normal node configuration use case, not by p+c), and then someone
in your roster becomes online, PEP service will send the last item to it
if new configuration allows it, even if configuration at the moment of
publishing did not. At least this is how I understand it. So as long as
it is possible to configure a node without publishing new item that
replaces old one, p+c won't work.
