Actually, that is (one) of the things the notifications system was designed to accommodate. If you use attach a feed generator (like Yagi) to the notification queues, plus a PubSubHubub hub, folks can subscribe to events by event type. (Other pubsub strategies would work too, like XMPP pubsub)

PSH pushes to a web callback supplied by the client. Presumably they could run the callback receiver somewhere else, or some thru some proxy.
