You can scratch many-to-many unless you want a bunch of people sharing a
resource. Realistically it'll be one entity that publishes to many.
Though there would be the case in which Alice forwards message to Bob,
Bob forwards to Cathy, Cathy sends to the world. That's the closest
you'll get to many-to-many, and that requires that signed and/or
encrypted messages can get nested.
