I agree, publishing content can go in to feeds. But even they, are  
limited up to 10 per user per day. And not all notifications are about  

Probably ti will be better to have two FB implementations. One to be  
trigged by application (ex to add a feed entry when adding content )  
and one to notify users (example to return a disposition notification).

To reduce the number of external messages we can even make an  
crossover check to see if local friends are even FB friends (probably  
mostly). So a user is not notified remotely if can be locally (my mail  
or with Letter).
