[Standards] Microblogging structure

I was reading the xep-0277 (Microblogging over XMPP), when I was asking 
myself if the structure used for reply is really interesting: if Mr. A 
has subscribed to my µblog node but not the Mr. B's one, and if Mr. B 
answered to me, it can be interesting for Mr. A to access to Mr. B's 
answer. In this case, the system used by the xep is not efficient: the 
reply notification will only be sent to me, not to Mr. A.
Then, why not making something like a notify-node where a new entry is 
added when Mr. B post is own answer on his node. The entry added to my 
node will just be a reference to Mr B's answer. Like this, he keeps 
control of his published data, but everybody will be notified by this.

This system should be generalized for other kind of publications, like 
blog articles, forums, etc.
