Good luck with that. :)

By which I mean, I don't think we need a new message type. Indeed I 
think message type='headline' works quite well here -- the idea behind 
the headline type is that it is an event, a notification, the kind of 
thing you won't directly reply to (but as in microblogging you might 
generate a new message that is related to the original).
