Yup, it's the publisher (I called it sender, I'm sorry) - if an entity
knows how to send something (this case: emit an eventing information),
it's the most probable that it has some clues about how it would
render upon reception...

I don't insist it should be called body; I only insist there should
exist a common field for all eventing protocols containing
pre-rendered information. How, and what is upon the list.
