Why this obsession with overloading HTTP?
Bouncing JSON over HTTP for a global pubsub-system does not strike me as a particularly useful idea. Something more akin to netnews (where updates are batched) or jabber (where subscriptions are followed in real time) would be much more sane.
And don't give me some crap about firewalls, because email and IRC and games work perfectly even among the technically uninformed majority.
