Maybe my view on this diverges from everyone else's, but I don't think
PEP is/should be restricted to IM. It is a totally artificial
restriction you are putting on your self that makes things more
complicated. Why wouldn't (to keep the example) one microblogger be
connected to one JID and his microblog stored in a PEP node on that?
