hum, i guess chapter 6.4.5 is what you said.
A service MAY return event notifications without payloads (e.g., to  
conserve bandwidth). If so, the client MAY request a specific item  
(using the ItemID) in order to retrieve the payload. When an entity  
requests items by ItemID, implementations MUST allow multiple items  
to be specified in the request.

Example 73. Subscriber requests specific items by ItemID

<iq type='get'
     from='francisco at denmark.lit/barracks'
   <pubsub xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/pubsub'>
     <items node='princely_musings'>
       <item id='368866411b877c30064a5f62b917cffe'/>
       <item id='4e30f35051b7b8b42abe083742187228'/>

actual pubsub implementation does not handle that case anyway
