i think publishing and deletion are 2 totally different things. Compare 
it with Email. I think the most people delete old email periodically. So 
what they do is go thru all emails, mark them all and delete them all at 
the same time. Which is a batch process for me. Same with NNTP, if a 
newsserver keeps the messages for e.g 6 month, then it will delete old 
messages in a batch process.
And why not send all the event notifications in one message stanza? This 
will save lots of bandwidth.
