Pubsub XEP-0060 states:

     "6.4.6 Returning Notifications Only

     "A service MAY return event notifications without payloads (e.g., 
to conserve bandwidth). If so, the client MAY request a specific item 
(using the ItemID) in order to retrieve the payload. When an entity 
requests items by ItemID, implementations MUST allow multiple items to 
be specified in the request."

Is it possible to change this so as to specifically allow for the 
requesting of specific items even where the service does support payloads?
