To whom would you push?

To all connected resources of the owner, right? Thats pretty close  
the client experience with PIP.

Also, even if you instantly deploy that feature to all XMPP servers  
in the world, clients wouldn't know what hit them. They are not  
expecting that push. So now you need to deploy new clients to take  
advantage of this. And if you are going through all that trouble,  
would it be better to redeploy them with something that has a vast  
range of usages (pubsub) instead of something that has limited use
