I'm not familiar with BC inbox but it sounds similar. The tricky part is 
making sure the smart entity in the middle (the "inbox" or such) has 
access rights to the feeds. For example, if the feed is private but has 
granted access to your JID, then you'd need a way to have access granted 
to the inbox JID as well. Does BC have a solution for that?

My suggestion is to generalize the approach of having one entity act on 
behalf of another.
