[jdev] Pubsub payload as cdata

When publishing an item to a pubsub node, does the item has to be an xml
element like

<item id='bnd81g37d61f49fgn581'>
    <entry xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom'>

or can a user just publish cdata like

<item id='avatar_url'>

The second form make the database representation of the data much cleaner
when appropriate.
In a web admin for example, it is much easier to see the data.

I understand the importance of the namespace for clients that should handle
different kinds of nodes
but for a dedicate client it might suit well.

In a RDBMS the item payload is probably saved as the xml as string.
One could have a field for the payload tag, payload namespace and payload

What is the best practice?
