Okay, I've been thinking a while theses last days about this, read again 
this thread: 
http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/standards/2010-September/023817.html , 
and then would share some ideas:
- every pubsub node can have an "answer" node, given in an @related 
attribute (or else), which is a collection node, and on which users will 
post answers;
- for each item in the node, there is a subnode created on the answer 
collection node using the id of the concerned item. The server will 
create it only when an user will publish an element on the subnode.
- each item in the answer node can have an @related attribute, which is 
the id of an another item published in the same answer node; Basically, 
I tough about "thread" attribute, but this is limited at one sub-level 
of answer.
- user can post a reference element on the answer node in state of 
publish element directly on the answer node. In this case, use atom?
This system can be used for microblogging, blogging, forum, and so...

Example for microblogging:

C: <iq type="get" to="romeo at shakespeare.it">
<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#items">
S: <iq type="result" to="juliet at shakespeare.it">
<item node="urn:xmpp:microblog" related="urn:xmpp:microblog:comments" />
node="urn:xmpp:activityStream"related="urn:xmpp:activityStream:comments" />
<item node="mylifeisbeautiful"related="comments/mylifeisbeautiful" />
<item node="ilovejulietsomuch"related="comments/ilovejulietsomuch" />
C: <iq type="get" to="romeo at shakespeare.it">
S: <iq type="result" to="juliet at shakespeare.it">
<items node="urn:xmpp:microblog:0" related="urn:xmpp:microblog:comments">
<item id="item000"> <!-- DATA --> </item>
<item id="item001"> <!-- DATA --> </item>
<item id="item002"> <!-- DATA --> </item>
C: <iq type="get" to="romeo at shakespeare.it">
<query xmlns="http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#items" 
S: <iq type="result" to="juliet at shakespeare.it">
<item node="item000"/>
<item node="item001"/>
<item node="item002"/>
