Let me describe further the example that brought me to this conclusion.
We are dealing with Pubsub based sketching, geoloc, whiteboard
application that send update on quite a fast rate (headline messages).
Possibly we need another concept here, but I bringing the point that in
the current state, it does not seem desirable to trigger tens / hundreds
of push notifications for those headline messages.
That and the fact that when a client receive a push, the default
behaviour is probably to reconnect to retrieve message. In that case a
push is received, but no offline message will be delivered.
