In the Buddycloud project we are doing things very close to this.  The
next version we are releasing in near future will be fully PubSub
based. The biggest difference we have is that the "microblogging" is
not on PEP nodes, but on "normal" nodes on specific component based on
XEP-0060. This is done so that any JID can be used (@gtalk.com,
@jabber.org, etc) to use the service.

It would be my pleasure to explain more what we have done. It has been
my plan to write a longer mail about the system as soon as the system
is out. I'll be also at FOSDEM and participating the "XMPP Summit 8"
to spread information what we have found and learned.

PubSub Rocks!
