First notes:

in example 3, the XML is broken. See the ref attributes in the    
<thr:in-reply-to> tags.

Regarding section 3, isn't this hardcoding a translation to be done  
in the pubsub service? Shouldn't we have some way to specify which  
element of the item should be used in the body?  I think hard-coding  
this kind of stuff leads to insanity... Maybe a attribute in a  
specific namespace added to the <title> tag?
