Surely the most direct mapping of PEP to llXMPP is to provide a mapping
of entity capabilities into mDNS records (by analogue to <c> nodes in
<presence>)? Then discoing/caching proceeds as normal, and other
PEP-using clients know who to notify about updated PEP nodes based on
the existence of the XMLNS+notify capability, in the same way that
servers behave with PEP.
