Thank you, that is quite a revelation to me. I didn't realize that there was
such a distinction. I realize now this is also covered in section 4.6 of

So in theory, I should be able to use pubsub and use the following stanza to
subscribe to the geoloc PEP node (assuming permissions are OK):

 <iq type='set'
     to='juliet at shakespeare.lit'
   <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>

My guess is that this will fail on most implementations because the access
mode for PEP nodes is "roster". But that is OK.
