OK that's clear.

Yes. In fact maybe that should be done now - to avoid (new)
implementations of the non-PEP parts? As things stand, if you have two
online resources in different physical locations, then they will
indicate that your corporeal body is in two different places at the same
It might also be useful to add a second namespace to the XEP (or publish
another XEP) that will allow resources to indicate in a standard way
where they are (<description>Home</description>,
<description>Office</description>, etc.). The value of the 'id'
attribute of each pubsub <item/> could be the associated resource
What do people think?
