(Actually, I'd meant in a perspective of redefining pubsub, cause Atom 
is more flexible than the item element itself. Anyway...)

Okay, so let's take the Atom way then: when a node allows a write access 
to user, it means he can post reply to items on it. But there stills a 
problem: imagine than - in a more general way - I post an blog article 
on my "blog" node; how will I manage wether people will effectively post 
a reply to this article or when they will post an article which is not a 
reply? For certain kind of content allowing people post in my node item 
which are not necesseraly item can be useful (like facebook wall), but 
others no.
