Ralph and I chatted about this today. We provisionally concluded that we
don't need the 'type' and that the href should point to a pubsub node
(in this case), either a PEP node or a generic pubsub node, such as:

xmpp:stpeter at jabber.org?;node=blog-node


I wonder if we need a wrapper namespace for blog nodes (where Atom is
the payload), but that's probably a separate topic.
