I've responded a few times, already, but here goes again:

Is there any gain in renaming this, except for the new name being more
accurate? I'm also not sure about what the installed base is for other
implementations besides Idavoll. If no-one really uses this, yet, I have
no problems with changing it.

There is no 'blacklist' value defined for pubsub#subscription_model. We
do have the outcast affiliation, though, which solves it already.

I'm against having node owners having to authorize every item retrieval.
A node set to this subscription model would simply require to subscribe

I agree subscribing to data node here is kind of useless. Once
published, an avatar's image data can't possibly change because the item
id is a hash of the image data itself.

I'm also still not happy with the use of 'content-type' as opposed to
'type', but that is a nit.
