hAtom is just semantics. You can do with them whatever you want. For  
most this is subscribing. For other's it's "put it in a database and  
make it searchable"

Just because a format was developed with a certain set of use cases  
in mind doesn't mean that the semantics wouldn't be useful in other  
use cases.
