Ok, that's great, I am using this feature now and it seems to work
excellent. But I have one adjacent question: is it possible for a pubsub
service to modify a payload someway? For example, to filter spam /
obscene or inadmissible expressions, also it may be useful to add an
"alternate" link to atom payloads with a web representation of the item
because client can't know where exactly it will be located. So if it is
possible then client should know how the item is now looks. It may be
done with including the changed payload into the same result iq, I think. :)
