What if one combines Dynlink with a pub/sub Broker and creates observe bindings to topics? Likewise with Dynlinks one could create push bindings for outgoing notifications. In this case the node that hosts the pub/sub broker will also be a client due to the Dynlinks. Multicast would also be possible with a push Dynlink.

Best regards,
