Ah yes, I figured that out in the meantime. Probably should have
answered to myself earlier.

But I don't know why you think it is optional. XEP-0163 says a PEP
service MUST implement it. I think client implementations should handle
this. But most don't. It works in Miranda, but it doesn't in Pidgin and
Gajim. I'm not sure about Psi as I have not tested it.
For Gajim I've written a patch which is currently in their Trac.
