example 1:
     <query xmlns='urn:xmpp:delegation:0' type='request'

Does this really have to use query + type=request?
     <request xmlns=urn:xmppp:delegation:0' delegation='admin'>

same example:
         <delegate namespace='jabber:iq:roster'/>

How about reusing what we have in disco, i.e.
         <feature var='jabber:iq:roster'/>

 > 4.2 Server Forwards Delegated <iq/> Stanza

In one direction the stanza goes via the server
Juliet -> capulet -> pubsub.capulet

and in the other it goes directly to juliet
pubsub.capulet -> Juliet
and is also stamped with a from=pubsub.capulet. I think that's not going 
to work for cases where the client checks the from in addition to the iq id.

mattj/kev: does xep-0297 work for <iq/>? Alternatively I think one can 
do some iq-id-mangling to encode the resource in a way such that routing 
via capulet.lit still works.
