It is, but that's an explicit subscription to a PEP node, so if  
Juliet doesn't have PEP, then that won't work.

The thing is, if you have a person, represent that with an IM account.

If you want to tie Pubsub nodes to that person, do so with PEP (or at  
least Pubsub-onna-jid, which is a superset of PEP).
