Hmm, good point. In any case, both pubsub#type and pubsub#payload_xslt 
would presumably be some kind of advanced configuration options that 
would be hidden from end users. And I think pubsub#payload_xslt needs to 
be a configuration option, too -- currently the latter field is shown 
only as metadata, not as a configuration option.
