"Node" as the name of a JID component has been in use for at least 5 years, is 
defined in our most critical spec possible (XMPP-Core), and is likely 
littered all over codebases ("jid.node = foo").

I say we're stuck with using the term in both JID and PubSub contexts.  This 
is not that bad though.  The term is appropriate in either case, and term 
overloading happens all the time ("id" anyone?).
