I don't think PEP is restricted to IM I guess, but it does require a
roster/presence to make it work. In fact, I have done this by creating a web
service that uses a bot to receive PEP events (location, etc) from users
subscribed to the bot. If you had 1000 entities who wanted to get updates to
your microblog, you would need 1000 entities subscribed to you in your
roster in order for PEP to work. 

I have even a better example: I want to post your current location to a web
page by subscribing to your geoloc pubsub node. Currently I would have no
way to programmatically find out where your node is I believe.
